Planetary Listening

Planetary Listening is a collective of artists and researchers focusing on listening and human and more-than-human entanglements. Formed in 2021, our activities consist of holding study sessions on pertinent topics, organizing small-scale workshops with invited guests, and creating a public program at indoor and outdoor sites across Berlin.

Our current program, under the title Swamps and Stars, consists of four event modules (one per season) bringing together artists, scientists, storytellers and musicians to explore listening and planetarity.

Participants include: Kat Austen, Miguel Buenrostro, Kate Donovan, Heather Frasch, Florence Freitag, Francisca Rocha Goncalves, Brandon LaBelle, Michelle-Marie Letelier, Carla J. Maier, Samuel Perea-Diaz, Eleni-Ira Panourgia, and Daniela Medina Poch.
