Street Writings

Weneger, Claudia (2006) Street Writings. [Art/Design Item]

Type of Research: Art/Design Item
Creators: Weneger, Claudia

'‘Street Writing ‘as an audio art work grows out of a series of writing and audio workshops with people at crisis/skylight in London’s East End during May and June 2006. In the research for the project, I was working with changing group of audiences, firstly, with a small limited audience group who becomes more and more active as a producer, finally signing, as group, a piece of work (the first radio programme). Only after this process is completed a secondary reflection process starts for me as an artist exchanging with the other artists involved, each of us responding with an ‘edited mix’ of workshop material, an in some way formalised articulation; the question guiding us (and me esp. as editor of the entire piece) was, how to make the experience and the material of six weeks of workshops perceivable to a wider audience who had no knowledge of the workshop process, i.e. how to capture the attention of an uninformed listener. The work includes the publication of an audio CD by WEEDWORKS (distributed via the ARTWORDS Bookshop: www.artwords.co.uk, copies of the CD were also sold at the Eastside Bookshop in Brick Lane and in the bookshops of FACT centre Liverpool and Palais de Tokiyo Paris); in collaboration with artists Charles Hayward, Valerie Vivancos, Alan Dunn and Jeff Young; it was presented on Resonance104.4fm on 22ndJune by the workshop participants, followed by a radio conversation with writer/curator Guy Brett, Terry Humphrey, Charles Hayward and myself -Claudia Wegener on 29thJune, <www.resonancefm.com>); funded by Arts Council England.
