What happens when voice is documented? How are memory, storytelling and history preserved, and what is lost in the process?

The exhibition Talking Heads: Archival Echoes presents three artistic positions on archiving of ‘voice.’ Archives are not only understood here as documentation. They are a productive medium for telling personal, collective and political stories. The multimedia works presented here test the limits of what is an archive and where voice resides within it. The video archive HERstory founded in 2017 by curator Julie Crenn and artist Pascal Lièvre, captures personal accounts of feminist and gendered positions in the art world. In 2023, HERstory recorded a new set of interviews in Berlin which will be presented in the exhibition. Tuấn Mami’s installation Museum of the Immigrating Garden (2023) reveals a deeply personal and hidden story of migration from Vietnam to Germany. The work is part of the ongoing project, Immigrating Garden (2020 – present), through which the artist explores the diasporic voices behind discretely imported and home-grown plants from Vietnam. Finally, Gulzat Egemberdieva’s installation Neither in the Mountain, nor in the Field (2023) explores the importance of orality for nomadic communities of Central Asia. Egemberdieva’s experimental documentary film is accompanied here by photography by Tobias Marschall and Fazhilak Bakiri, as well as an on-site installation.

Curated by Eva Bentcheva and Lisa Paland


Programme Series VOICE:over

Over the next two years, the Galerie Nord | Kunstverein Tiergarten’s VOICE:over programme series will delve into various phenomena related to the voice. With cross-disciplinary exhibition projects, performances and a multifaceted outreach programme, VOICE:over explores the changes in meaning and significance of physical and social forms of the voice – from screams to speech and song to artificial intelligences’ posthuman imitation of the human voice.

Supported by the federal programme “Neustart Kultur” of Stiftung Kunstfonds, by the multi-sector funding as well as the district funding of the Senate Department for Culture and Europe, the Embassy of the Kyrgyz Republic and by Würth Elektronik.
