Work n° 2: I played ‘nostalgic’ ‘ethnic’ music on the tram and public transport in antwerp from a bluetooth speaker (2016)

August 19, 2017 Actions, music

During autumn/winter 2016 I played non-Western music from my portable speakers in the tram 24 in Antwerp. Carefully curated, I found music through calling out my non-Western friends’ to share me songs their parents used to listen to at the house and other ‘nostalgic’ songs that are usually confined to the private space. The public action generated a lot of smiles, giggles, laughter, compliments, curiousity and confusion.

It happened 7 times over the span of november ’16 until january ’18 and every session lasted about an hour.
