SOUNDSEEING –The Sound Art Festival Across Münsterland

Extraordinary sounds at cultural venues across Münsterland – for more than 12 years, this has been the distinguishing feature of »SOUNDSEEING«, a sound art series unique in Germany. From Rheine to Münster and from Hörstel to Bocholt, in all Münsterland districts and in the city of Münster, top-class sound art can be heard at authentic places: at the rock’n’popmuseum Gronau, in DA, Kunsthaus Gravenhorst in Hörstel, in Hawerkamp-Halle in Münster, at Burg Vischering in Lüdinghausen or at Kubaai-Kulturquartier Bocholt. Internationally renowned artists such as Frauke Eckhard, Till Kniola, Christina Kubisch, Dodo Schielein, Christof Schläger, Ralf Schreiber and Tina Tonagel engage with special cultural venues through all the means of sound art and enchant them with poetic sound objects, ambient sound installations, interactive listening instructions and novel instruments. The aim is to open ears and eyes to something new!
