Based on labour and its sonicity, the 12th edition of sonsbeek —the pathbreaking quadrennial for art in the public space—is co-curated by Antonia Alampi, Amal Alhaag, Zippora Elders and Aude Christel Mgba under the artistic direction of Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung. The project engages a plethora of mediums like storytelling, music, visual and performative arts, architecture and sonic inquiries, through which notions and practices of labour — paid and unpaid, forced and voluntary, manual and intellectual, skilled and unskilled, productive and unproductive — are explored.
