Sunaparanta is pleased to announce Pallavi Paul’s participation in The New Alphabet School’s edition on Caring by HKW (Haus der Kulturen der Welt) in Berlin. As part of our collaboration, Sunaparanta and HKW open Paul’s ongoing online participatory project #shareyourquiet to newer entries under the theme of ‘listening as care’. At a time when noise has become an index of public spirit, can quietude harness something outside overdetermined and hyper-regulated imaginations of contemporary life? Can the sharing and listening of “quietude” be a space of care and resistance? Since 26 March 2020, Paul has been inviting people to send 10-second audio clips of silence from their confined surroundings. Recordings compiled since then have been aired online as a collective symphony of quiets. As part of our collaboration, we are inviting participants to send their ‘quiet’ to firstname.lastname@example.org or via WhatsApp to +91 98333 03760 from 20 May – 1 June 2020. Contributions received will be broadcasted on Instagram #shareyourquiet on 12 June 2020.
