"Strategisch Hören“ (Strategic Listening) is an ensemble of three posters. Point of reference is an exercise in the German textbook for Integration Courses "Berliner Platz Neu“ about how to train the understanding of spoken language. The series consists of (1) a fragment of the original page with title and illustration, (2) a commentary upon the concept of strategic listening that echoes both language and layout of German textbooks, and (3) a description of the sound qualities of question marks (after Konstantin Stanislavski).
