Station of Commons is pleased to invite you to:

Station of Sounds online stream on:

12.02.2021 - 18-22 (CET) based in MUU Gallery, Cable Factory Helsinki.
On 12.02.2021 will happen the first session of future recurrent event 
Station of Sounds within Station of Commons. Station of Sounds is moment 
of discussions on the mode of production of physical objects related to 
sound form. What motivates the production of the physical object and how 
to articulate the artistic and political discourse embedded within the 
materiality of the object. During the session, four artists discuss 
their relationship to sound through playing their own latest physical 
production or releases of interest. After the discussion, we listen to 
the record at stake played from turntable.

A event organized by Minerva Juolahti and Gregoire Rousseau.

crossroads between sound and visual arts.
