Can Participatory Experience Performances Co-create Qualification and Design of Audible Public Realm?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


This paper discusses if experience performances, as part of a multi-sensory approach, can support qualification of public spaces. Based on Participatory Experience Performances, such as sound and experience walks during Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017 and Inter-Noise 2016 in Hamburg done by the authors, this paper discusses the interrelationship between moving, listening and
seeing, all equally important for experiencing and shaping the city. The paper suggests the concept of Participatory Experience Performances and discusses if such performances could act as co-creative steps within the city making process. Finally, the promotion of embodied knowledge and language about human sensation and human-site interrelation, particularly in view of acoustically and visually differentiated spaces, which accentuates human becoming, is discussed as truly radical democratic and performative areas of action.
