Echoes... from the Tervuren Museum Sound Archive
Exhibition opening: Thursday, November 13th
Focusing primarily on an “ears-on” approach to non-material heritage, visitors will have the opportunity to hear a selection of audio inscriptions from the Tervuren Museum sound archives, which come from the wider area of Central Africa. This sound exhibition insists on “experiencing” sound without, however, neglecting their “ethnographic realities” – the time, place and means by which the sound inscriptions were made. This approach is able to question the way in which by primarily engaging the sense of hearing – giving sight and the visual a secondary role in the museum context – visitors actively listen and (inevitably) continually re-interpret musealia.Guests of the opening:
Rémy Jadinon Žadinon, kustos KMCA i autor kataloga izložbe
dr Ana Kotevska, muzikolog
The sound installation is a result of the signed Protocol on Cooperation between the Museum of African art (MAA) in Belgrade and the Royal Museum for Central Africa (RMCA) – Tervuren, Belgium.More information, soon!
