Second Culture Session

Inspired by the concept of second culture developed in former Czechoslovakia, the performance is a meditation on the politics of listening and territory. What might we hear within the frame of second culture? Is there a second listening to be performed, one that might give space for a polyphony of soundings? Staged as a session of collective listening, the performance considers sound as a vital medium for subject formation, and asks us to hear beyond the territorial rigidity of first culture, to form a temporary node of emancipatory acoustics.
