From Saturday, 26 February the sound art group exhibition “Misconnections” is open in the large gallery of the Tartu Art House. The exhibition curator is Martin Rästa.

What happens when the means of mass communication replace the dialogue with endless parallel monologues? Will the message hold up or collapse in a deafening roar? What happens when the info doesn’t transfer from one to another but is reflected back into a void of the same shape? Or if the inability to actively listen becomes so dominant that each non-conforming thought fades before it is formed? What if everybody talks at the same time but nobody listens?

The exhibition shapes the messages of the participating artists into a generative group artwork, exploring the meaning and possibility of the dialogue process in the post-internet era.

Participating artists: John Grzinich, Roomet Jakapi, Raul Keller, Kiwa, Patrick Tubin McGinley, Uku Pira, Ann Reimann, Martin Rästa, Sten Saarits, Karl Saks, Renzo van Steenbergen, Taavi Suisalu and Hello Upan.

Curator and graphic design: Martin Rästa
