Since the 1960s, contemporary art demonstrates an increasing level of interest in the ways of dealing with and experiencing immersion. In order to dissolve the boundary between the work... and the recipient, sounds are an effective, versatile artistic instrument that enables ‘immersion’ also in the sense of physical perception of fictitious spaces by evoking acoustic immersion effects. By looking a.o. at video works by Chinese artist Ma Qiusha and the performances by South African artist Lerato Shadi, in which sound Body(conditions) are put in relation to each other, the guided tour examines the potentials of acoustic immersion.
