From Goethe Institut:
Curator Susanne Husse will give an introduction to the exhibition SAY IT LOUD. on words and actions on 03.12 at Goethe-Institut Hanoi. Recently shown at District Berlin, the exhibition investigates the extent to which language is used in the construction of public identities and as a medium of social interaction. This talk is related to the art projectSkyline with Flying People curated by Linh Nguyen who will give an introduction and participate in the subsequent discussion.
SAY IT LOUD. on words and actions, was an art project at District Kunst- und Kulturförderung in Berlin in October 2012, with 12 international artists assembled by the curators Susanne Husse, Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung and Megan Marissa Steinman,. The various works in the exhibition reflected critically on the essential character of speech and text while simultaneously pointing out their inherent power relationships. In the context of contemporary communications, which increasingly prefer text-based interaction to physical communication, SAY IT LOUD asks artists and their audiences to question both the hierarchies and possibilities woven into the relationship between words and actions.
Susanne Husse (born 1982 in Görlitz) studied literature and linguistic sciences, cultural management (M.A.), art history and philosophy in Rome and Berlin. She has worked since 2008 as an independent curator and author in Berlin. In 2009 and 2010 she was curatorial adviser and production manager for Hörspielpark Berlin. From 2008 to 2011 she was a member of Berlin Kunsthalle e.V. where, under the title The Arts and the City, she organised conferences, workshops and interventions at the interface between art, urban spaces, experimental exchange formats and community-based artistic engagement. In 2012 she was granted a lectureship at the Berlin Weißensee School of Art.
