Performance by Achim Lengerer (artist, Berlin) with Sally Musleh Jaber (performer, Berlin) and Petra Kübert (sound library Deutschlandradio, Berlin).

Achim Lengerer's work deals with the performativity of language and speech as well as the transformation of language into spatial constellations within an exhibition context. 
Since 2009 Lengerer runs the travelling showroom and instant publishing 
house Scriptings. A hybrid between “script” and “writings” the publications serve both as a container for material and as a module in the production process: transcription, notations, log book. Achim Lengerer will present an acoustic rehearsal of his upcoming publication ZOOOOM: Little Body Heart Beating.*

*kindly supported by Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen, Innsbruck; ORF Kunstradio, Wien; Goethe-Institut/CNEAI, Paris;

Thanks to Hans Cybinski, sound library of Deutschlandradio, Berlin.
