sound installation by Justin Bennett at Stroom’s WeberWoche
Event: 10.09. – 14.09.2014
Location: Stroom Den Haag, Hogewal 1-9, The Hague
Spectral Analysis is concerned with the history of the use of technology as a tool for exploring and revealing the invisible. The background of this project is research into medical history, occult history, the role of technology in these histories and the role of the artist. The boundaries of this work have previously been explored in two sound walks (headphone-based audio-guides) and a series of drawings.

In the fall of 2014, Stroom Den Haag will present the so-called WeberWoche, celebrating the re-enchantment of the world and ideas. The starting point of this exhibition and performance programme is the concept of the Entzauberung der Welt, the disenchantment of the world, a notion first articulated by the German sociologist Max Weber in Science as a Vocation (1919).
Artists, performers, filmmakers, composers and theoreticians, resourcing from multiple areas of knowledge and operating through contrasting artistic and discursive strategies, will shape a multifaceted program aimed at questioning the role of enchantment in today’s secularized Western society.
WeberWoche presents contributions by Alexander Kluge, Gabriel Lester, Helga Wretman, Jan Verwoert, Jasper Niens, Justin Bennett, Katie Paterson, Katja Novitskova, Koen Vermeir, Melanie Bonajo, Nathaniel Mellors, Plastique Fantastique, Rachel Maclean, Robertas Narkus, Ryan Trecartin and Simon O’Sullivan.
The event is curated by Bruno Listopad in collaboration with and upon invitation by Stroom Den Haag.
