ZKM, Global Control and Censorship 2015; sound recording and digital prints.

Platz ZKM Joe Krasean

An urban intervention is documented in this work in which the artist walks through the streets around Karlsruhe Palace, quietly but persistently singing. What remains of this solitary interference with the city is metadata. Anyone who is familiar with the layout of the city of Karlsruhe will recognise the streets in the abstract drawing, which Krasean has made based on GPS data of the walkthrough recorded with an app. Together with the sound recordings (made separately after the walk), one can explore, imagine, and reconstruct the entire walk. (Lívia Rózsás)
