(documentary premiere) followed by a talk: „Augmented soundwalk as artistic practice: sound art, politics, democracy and memory“
A brief excursion to Valparaiso streets that is shaped as an essay-documentary. This 30-minute film shows the city from the perspective of sound and silence, aiming to narrate us part of a hidden history, starting from missing or absent sounds that have disappeared by the passing of time and also, recently, due to confinement. Right after that, we invite you to an open dialogue with the creative team, entitled „Augmented soundwalk as artistic practice: soundart, politics, democracy and memory“.
