“…Are we not touched by the same breath of air which was among that which came before? is there not an echo of those who have been silenced in the voices to which we lend our ears today?…”

Walter Benjamin, “On the Concept of History”

 

POST-MORTEM

The program with the general title voice-o-graph aims to document – as an obituary – all human voices, without exception, believing at any time and moment – right now – in a resurrection without messianic awaiting, without biblical brightening but as sympathetic actions of re-enactment, the leaf of an amaranth, as turn table needles, amplifiers and loudspeakers, animates the recorded voices (vinyl records, audio tapes etc.).

Panos Charalambous is the Rector of the Athens School of Fine Arts. Born in 1956, he has studied at the Athens School of Fine Arts (1983-1988) in the class of N. Kessanlis.
