Monheim Triennale II: The Sound – Sonic Art in Public Spaces



We are pleased to announce the start of the second Monheim Triennale. From June 3 to July 2, 2023, Monheim am Rhein will be the site of a new sound art festival:

The Sound - Sonic Art in Public Spaces.

At the invitation of Reiner Michalke, the Artistic Director of the Monheim Triennale, the curatorial team of Kathrin Jentjens and Frank Schulte has been working on exclusive collaborations with international sound artists since 2020. The works, most of which are site-specific to Monheim am Rhein, will be presented in public spaces for four weeks. Most of the artists have already been to Monheim several times to develop their ideas and test their feasibility.

The artists of The Sound offer a wide range of experiences and practices:

Hakeem Adam presented by Emeka Ogboh, Angela de Weijer, Caroline Devine, John Grzinich, Christina Kubisch, Myriam Lefkowitz, Amber Meulenijzer, Rie Nakajima, Phillip Sollmann / Konrad Sprenger, Staalplaat Soundsystem, Chris Watson, James Webb and Robert Wilson.

In the coming weeks we will present the artists and subsequently their works developed for The Sound.
