How can sound be made visible? This question is repeatedly asked in the practice of the artist Armin Lorenz Gerold (*1981 Graz, lives in Berlin). For the performance and installation Verstärkung (Amplification) (2021), a new work commissioned by HALLE FÜR KUNST Steiermark, Gerold created an audiovisual system of sculptures and flat monitors. His multi-disciplinary practice, which can be fundamentally defined as an investigation of photography and sound, transforms classical exhibition contexts into acoustic landscapes. Gerold, whose formats also always establish points of reference to radio and streaming, allows his audience to immerse themselves into a meditative flow of language and sounds.

Gender and Humor – a complicated field of stereotypes, clichés and exaggerations that we will try to master. A lecture based on the title of the exhibition, with some exclamation marks, but most of all many many question marks.
