The exhibition "For the Record" features artists who utilize music as a discursive site to articulate lived experiences and to question contemporary societal conditions under persisting colonial, imperial and capitalist enterprises.

About

Music is produced in specific cultural contexts and constitutes a fundamental basis for forming personal and collective identities. It symbolically connects us to places and cultures, helping to preserve histories of migrations and displacements of peoples across old empires, colonial regimes, and new global capitalist pursuits. It conjures narratives from distant pasts, resurrects lost voices and invents virtual futures. Musical works record the movement of bodies, fluctuating economies and the transpositions of knowledge. They are testament to acts of defiance and operate as tools to reconfigure spaces and systems.

The exhibition "For the Record" features artists who utilize music as a discursive site to articulate lived experiences and to question contemporary societal conditions under persisting colonial, imperial and capitalist enterprises.

Following the words of the French economic and social theorist Jacques Attali, music reflects the construction of society, and is a way of perceiving the world altogether. Yet listening to these musical registers involves the allocation of attention and awareness. "For the Record" turns to listening as an act of mindfulness: paying attention to neglected stories and experiences, while also creating spaces in which reimagination can occur.
