National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST) / ATHENS
Sonic DetectiveEMST is pleased to present the work of Lawrence Abu Hamdan for the first time in Greece. Abu Hamdan is a “private ear” whose audio-visual installations, videos, performances, photography, essays, and lectures explore the political effects of listening, using various kinds of audio to explore its effects on human rights and law. His interest in sound and politics originates from his background as a music producer and facilitator of DIY music. The artist’s audio investigations have been used as evidence at the UK Asylum and Immigration Tribunal and as advocacy for organisations such as Amnesty International. At EMST he will show “Rubber Coated Steel” (2016) and “Walled Unwalled” (2018), two film works that explore contested borders, citizenship, and freedom of movement.
EMST will remain closed every Monday, and also during the 15th of August and the 28th of October.
