Ira Hadžić: Heimatgefühle


Audio herunterladen (29,7 MB | MP3)

Seven voices speak the same text. Each has a different accent. From the sonic differences, artist Ira Hadžić composes an audio piece about the boundaries of language and their dissolution.

“Here stands a reference-free word that longs for fulfillment.” This word is written in a text by Ira Hadžić. With its help, the artist explores what language means when it loses its meaning. Seven performers speak Hadžić’s text – in chorus, in turns and alone. Their voices are shaped by different lives and accents. In a collective act of speaking, they attempt to reach a space of experience beyond language. “There our home will find a home.”

Heimatgefühle is part of a series of works by Ira Hadžić around language compositions.

With: Maria de Faria, Hikaru Inagawa, Maco, Francesco Mancori, Carol McGuigan, Marco Montiel-Soto and Ira Hadžić.
Production: Deutschlandfunk Kultur 2021
