BAK 2017–2018 Fellow and artist Luigi Coppola brings together his ongoing interests in social choreography and “political chorality”—namely, underrepresented communities having voice through public art performances.

This collective experiment is part of his research on evolutionary population, which began within Coppola’s projects in Castiglione d’Otranto in the south of Italy. Making use of the writings about interethnic communities by politician and activist Alexander Langer and evolutionary plant breeding by agronomist Salvatore Ceccarelli, the artist coordinates an impromptu choir that addresses these textual sources through a live reading.

Fragments of Repair: Repair & Listen

Throughout the duration of the project Fragments of Repair, Kader Attia engages in creating a new eponymous work in the form of a gradually unfolding podcast and sound installation in twelve parts, titled Repair & Listen. 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.
