Doing Sounding Exchanging Thinking is a symposium that considers an intersection of ‘the sonic’, ‘knowledge sharing’, and ‘social action’ by expanding the idea of a performance-lecture to encompass a daylong symposium event. It will employ a cross-practice dialogue for artists, researchers, and audience to examine the sonic as articulated through notions of agency and performative practices.


The symposium invites international practitioners and academic researchers in the Netherlands. It provides an array of responses to how sonic practices are implicated in the social and what the conditions for these engagements can be. There are three types of presentation: Invited speakers, commissioned contributions that will be enacted by thickear, and presentations by researchers currently active in Dutch research institutes.
