Learning to Listen with Nanette Snoep


Every last Thursday of each month, the ADKDW invites you to a joint listening session at the Kompakt Record Store of the legendary Cologne label for electronic music. In each session, an invited guest will play selected songs, song fragments, or instrumentals and discusses them from a personal, music-historical, and/or political point of view.

Learning to Listen series
In radio broadcasts, podcasts and live events, Learning to Listen deals with forms of listening and non-listening - and the knowledge that can be drawn from them. The main aim of Learning to Listen is to initiate didactic processes intended to help us understand why certain sounds, songs, and narratives are heard and others are not, and to interweave auditory events with anti/de-colonial education. Together we will reflect on our internalized ways of thinking, of learning to listen and to un-learn.

NANETTE SNOEP has been director of the Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum Kulturen der Welt in Cologne since 2019. The exhibition RESIST! The Art of Resistance most recently highlighted 500 years of anti-colonial resistance in the Global South there, telling stories of colonial oppression and its effects to this day. The exhibition was a tribute to the women, men and children who resisted in a variety of ways and whose stories are still rarely told or heard today.
