Distance / Fiction
In Distance / Fiction questions are raised as to how we listen: How do we engage with sound around us and how do the technologies of sound recording and reproduction modulate what we hear? How is our auditory imagination informed by the traces and the material characteristics of these technologies? At which point does a change happen in our listening, from perceiving sound as a physical experience to perceiving it as an imaginary reconstruction of our surroundings?
In Distance / Fiction a set of loudspeakers and transducers are used to build a slowly transforming sounding space for the visitor to explore. The visitor is invited to attend to how listening unfolds in relation to the material properties of these amplification devices and the way they trigger the acoustic properties of the room.
ACPA Exhibition space
At the end of October 2018 ACPA has inaugurated the ACPA Exhibition Space, located at the basement of the P.J.Veth building. This new space is conceived as a platform to expose work by ACPA ´s Artistic Research PhD candidates.
As PhDs in ACPA carry out research in and through their artistic practices, these works are an integral part of the developing body of work that constitutes their doctoral research.
Every three months the work of a different PhD candidate will be exhibited. These works will thus be accessible to everyone, on weekdays, from 10:00 to 16:00.
The exhibition space can be reached through the main entrance of the PJ Veth building - located at the backyard of the Academiegebouw, Rapenburg 73 - by taking down the main stairs towards the basement.
