Learning to Listen

• Thu 26 10 2023 •
with Carmen Strzelecki


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.

Carmen Strzelecki founded the publishing house StrzeleckiBooks, which is dedicated to current and contemporary issues in the world of art and cultural production. StrzeleckiBooks works with renowned artists such as Harun Farocki, Philip Guston, Ernesto Neto, Andreas Schulze and Johannes Wohnseifer, and at the same time supports young and emerging artists. This focus is underlined by a close collaboration with the graphic studio Carmen Strzelecki, as well as long-term collaborations with institutions based in Germany such as Museum Ludwig, Bonner Kunstverein, Filmforum NRW, filmclub 813, Temporary Gallery and also Internationale Photoszene Köln Biennale and Cine Cologne. The design studio works with established institutions and international art scenes and independent art venues and collectives.

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. Together we will reflect on our internalized ways of thinking, of learning to listen and to un-learn.
