Audition #5 — Attention, attunement, and access: queer, trans* and neurodivergent perspectives on listening in the field
Audition #5 will feature an experimental, performative dialogue between Amias Hanley and BF/Local Time.
Fusing and fragmenting modes of critical practice, such as field recording, browser interaction and autotheory, Audition #5 explores intersections of failure, distraction, (in)visibility, gender, paranoia and embodied experiences of fieldwork.
Convener: Amias Hanley

Collingwood Yards - 4/35 Johnston St, Collingwood
