Workshop @ Peter Behrens School of Arts
Listen, Simply Listen.
November 11th, 2015
I gave a lecture on attentive listening as part of the annual Intra Muros week at the Peter Behrens School of Arts in the architecture department of the Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences. In my workshop I juxtaposed the concept of Silence by John Cage, the piece I am sitting in a room by Alvin Lucier, and the graduation commencement speech This is water by David Foster Wallace. The students and I also practiced listening whithout judgement.
Oliver Kruse, Professor of Perception and Design Theory at the Peter Behrens School of Arts already initiated workshops and presentations on the topic of awareness and concentration as part of the Intra Muros week last year. This year he shared the responsibility for the program with graduate designer Nicola Richter.
