Podcast and sound installation

17 April–26 September 2021


Repair & Listen

A podcast and sound installation realized in the framework of the multi-part project Fragments of Repair

Throughout the duration of the project Fragments of Repair, Kader Attia engages in creating a new work in the form of a gradually unfolding podcast and sound installation in twelve parts, titled Repair & Listen. Episodes are based upon one-on-one conversations between the artist and Utrecht or internationally-based academics, students, or activists from fields such as philosophy, history of science, economics, psychoanalysis, psychiatry, and social epidemiology. Drawing on transcultural epistemologies and lived experiences, the podcast investigates “repair” as a concrete practice to counter the psychological impact of living through a pandemic.

The episodes of the podcast will become available on this page, throughout the duration of Fragments of Repair. They can also be listened to in the form of a sound installation as part of exhibition Fragments of Repair/Kader Attia at BAK. 

This work is commissioned and produced by BAK and realized in collaboration with Utrecht University and a number of partners in the field of higher education and medical research.
