Part of GLADSTONE ‘On books and the housing of them’

Nomad Library is proposing to re-interpret printed knowledge by creating a series of gatherings or art exercises with different artists.

How to visualize sound and music in the context of the collections of Ethnomusicology and the Berlin Phonogram Archive?
During the last 4 months an artist team composed by: Cruz, Marangoni, Kolkowski and Wellmer had been working on a collaborative art piece/competition at the Ethnological Museum in Berlin entitled: Musik Sehen – Visualizing Music.Their proposal Lichtklangphonogramm, “Lightsoundphonogram” was the winning concept of this open call addressed to international artist teams.
“Lichtklangphonogramm” is an exhibition of historical and re-invented optical and mechanical sound machines from the era of the wax cylinder phonograph by Melissa Cruz García (COL-NL), Aleksander Kolkowski (UK), Matteo Marangoni (IT-NL) and Anne Wellmer (DE-NL) which embarks upon a travel through time from the moment when the first sound recording machines were invented in combination to the archeology of moving images of the 19th century and backwards. You are all invited to see and listen the results of this artistic research at the Ethnological Museum in Berlin-Germany.
