Hans Ivona

Soundinstallation (german only)
cultural studies paper, artificial voice, hi-fi system

Hans Ivona is an artificial surrogate for a vernissage opening speech. The hi-fi system is playing the speech on speakers located in every corner of the room, so no one is able to avoid the opening speech.
Without a representative speaker there is no one who takes up the centre of attention and the audience is able to focus on the speech.
