The Voice as a Medium

The voice as a medium, as a carrier of information, and as a political issue has been explored by VALIE EXPORT since the 1960s and has been translated into various formats defined by the artist: as a multi-channel video installation, as a body communication action and extended film, as a performance, and also as an intermedia theater play. This selection of sketches, notes, and catalog contributions documents a period of approximately 40 years. Content-wise it is about the power of the voice, used and abused by people in influential (political) positions. Not least, however, it is also about the self-empowerment of women who raise their voices to make their concerns and demands heard and who exercise self-determination.
