Berlin Wall in Angers

Location: temporarily; current site: Esplanade du Gaumont

2 segments

 

In 2011 Benoît Maubrey created a very impressive electroacustic sculpture with 1,000 recycled loudspeakers, radios, and amplifiers, which was installed in a modified form in Berlin. People could call up the sculpture and talk through it for 3 minutes. The whole sculpture amplifies peoples‘ statements and functions as a „Speakers Corner“ through which people can talk through. This sculpture was part of the ACCROCHE-COEURS festival in Angers.
