The sound installation (un)mutable channels at the House of World Cultures in Berlin collects voices and atmospheres from the landscapes along the Mississippi River. Mediated by sound and transferred into three-dimensional space, the diverse and untamable currents of the Mississippi River form the archival background noise for a flow of voices: Conversations with residents and activists, interviews with Anthropocene researchers, current news feeds and live performances.

Temporary continent. are the Canadian artists and researchers Jamie Allen, Louise Carver, Nina Jäger, Sarrita Hunn, James McAnally, Clémence Hallé, Benoît Verjat, Duncan Evennou and Anne-Sophie Milon.


This project is part of Canada’s cultural program as Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2020-2021 and is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and the Government of Canada (Canadian Embassy in Germany).
