Music For Lectures - Every word was once an animal (2018)

In this lecture with live music Mette Edvardsen will speak about language and repetition as material in her work. What does it mean to do the same? What does it mean to do something again? ‘Every word was once an animal’ is part of the series ‘Music For Lectures’ by Burrows and Fargion that aims to collide academic practice with the actuality of performance and continues their recent practice of creating often in proximity and collaboration with somebody else's work.
