The exhibition and the concert programme focus on the body as a tool for expression, rhetoric and messages – both political and social. To be Heard is to be Seen balances on a cutting edge between three different perspectives: in the visual arts, the voice is used as a metaphor, in performance, as a theatrical effect and in music, as a medium for experimental song techniques. A number of artists and musicians explore the scope of the voice and press back the boundaries of its potential, and of how it is formed:
