Sound Ecosystems: Deep Listening, Collectivity and Care
Workshop with Isabelle Edi & Luïza Luz
Saturday, 27.7.2024, 3–6 pm

Participation is free


Sound Ecosystems: Deep Listening, Collectivity & Care invites participants to explore the power of listening within the context of the exhibition [After her Destruction] by Lila-Zoé Krauß. Led by the artists Isabelle Edi and Luïza Luz, this session integrates field recordings, storytelling, and somatic exercises to enrich the practice of listening together. Participants will weave through auditory landscapes and reflections, engaging in a shared dramaturgy that blends personal and planetary narratives.

The listening session aims to cultivate a sense of care, connection, and political awareness through the act of listening, encouraging participants to reflect on and echo insights from their personal journey into their collective experiences, while also addressing the broader context of eco-liberation.


Isabelle Edi is an artist, costume designer, curator and DJ. Presently, she is enrolled in the Master’s programme Critical Studies at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. In artistic projects, her focus rotates around the existence of Black bodies in white-dominated cultural landscapes and the possibilities and reception of these in the moving-image out of a diasporic position. She has realised works at Schauspielhaus Hamburg, Thalia Theater, Hamburg, Kampnagel, Hamburg, Brut Vienna, Residenztheater, Vienna among others. In 2017, she co-founded the queer feminist collective POSSY, which works around visibility of FLINTA* in extended club contexts. In workshops and talks she shares knowledge and strategies of DJing and organizing.

Luïza Luz is a Brazilian transdisciplinary artist, researcher-educator, singer-composer and writer. Their work engages with spatial, performative, sensuous, sonic, written, and participatory ecologies, incorporating intuitive, scientific, and fictional approaches to language, deep listening, planetarity, and somatic practices. They are the founder of the Planetary Embodiment seminar at the Berlin University of the Arts and have also been a guest professor at various universities, including the Dirty Art Department of the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam. Luïza Luz’s work has been exhibited and activated in cultural and educational institutions worldwide. In [After her Destruction], they are part of the cast of the Choir of Mutants.
