In his new work, composer, musician, and artist Robert Lippok (*1966, East Berlin) envisions a utopia. Following the novel The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin, the artist explores possibilities of experiencing individuality within communities as well as the ambivalent space between individual, collective, and political collective-subject. How can one be part of a collective without losing one‘s own voice? Do the masses have a voice? How do idiosyncrasies sound in the collective body and what is the effect of their expression in the shared resonant space? 

Lippok‘s work, commissioned by Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden for Nature and State, consisted of a sound installation manifested by variously shaped glass objects. The artist‘s material included recordings he made in the immediate vicinity of the Kunsthalle in the grounds around Lichtentaler Allee. The noises, sounds, and tones were processed and arranged by Lippok.

For the edition Lippok chose videostills, depicting, as if looking through a colored glass, the surrounding park of Kunsthalle Baden-Baden.
