For WHISPERING BODIES, the first part of AUDIOREFLEX MÜNCHEN – SÃO PAULO (the second half will take place in Brazil in 2018), three artists from both cities will use audio guides to establish personal and political references to the exhibition pieces in the collection of the Münchner Stadtmuseum. Alejandro Ahmed’s audio walk contains small choreographic tasks to observe one’s own body, pulse, and breathing rhythm in context with the museum’s architecture. In her audio thriller Suli Kurban links the glass display cases about the murders committed by the German neo-Nazi group the National Socialist Underground (NSU) to the Puppet Theater/Fairground Attraction Collection. The mannequins there show how »foreigners« were staged as exotic horror elements – similar strategies can be found in the reporting on the NSU; the reporting criminalized the murder victims in its presentation. José Fernando de Azevedo deals with flight and fear, and for this purpose he leads the audience through the section »National Socialism in Munich«. Via the unusual format of audio performances for a museum, new possibilities will be opened up for the exhibitions to be experienced in a playful and yet critical manner.
