ANGEZAEHLT / COUNTED OUT

a sound installation commissioned by the

FESTIVAL OF REGIONS 2017
UNINVITED GUESTS
A-4614 MARCHTRENK

The walk-in sound installation ANGEZAEHLT / COUNTED OUT brings back a discovery from the Vienna Phonogrammarchiv, voices of Italian prisoners of war in Marchtrenk from the year 1918, to its recording location. Inside the prisoner camp’s historic water tower, it returns a voice to the persons who back then were forcibly studied. By alluding to the counting-out of fighters fallen to the ground, but also to the counting and talking voices themselves, the human perseverance of UNINVITED GUESTS is acknowledged.
