AGM 2005 =96 SILENCE
Toronto, ON (Canada) Sept 29th - Oct 15th 2005 - In collaboration
with=20=

and hosted by SOUNDplay sound & video Festival


The AGM idea
AGM aims to build collaborations and develop new connections among=20
participants and audiences. For =91AGM 05 SILENCE=92 we aim to enhance =
the=20
exchange between Canadian artists, and artists who already
collaborated=20=

with SOUNDplay Festival, with a group of European artists and with
the=20=

AGM structure.=A0
We see AGM as a meeting, a sort of T.A.Z. where exchange, work, and=20
collaboration are generated and continuously fluxing and shuffling,=20
with no beginning and no end. And for this reason, every AGM relies
on=20=

the temporality of the event and the continuity of the effort, in
order=20=

to create the conditions for this exchange throughout a period of
time=20=

spent working together.


AGM 05 SILENCE
The installations responding on SILENCE of respectively Christof=20
Migone, Richard Crow and Iben Bentzen together with the performance
of=20=

Richard Crow and the screening of Katarina L=F6fstr=F6m's videos are=20
selected by AGM =96 Annual General Meeting. An initiative based in=20
Copenhagen and Berlin headed by the two curators and artists Alfredo=20
Cramerotti and Iben Bentzen.

AGM05 wants to explore different sides and angles of the notion of=20
Silence. We have encourage the invited artists to address silence
with=20=

different approach eg. silence and politics, silence and urbanity,=20
silence and nature, physical and psycological silence. Silence has=20
multilayered meanings. If you stay silent, you may consent or negate=20
according to specific situations and contexts. Silence is used and=20
understood differently according to social or religious customs.=20
Silence is not only to be seen as opposed to noise, or as a term used=20
within sound-experimental practice, but also as a tool in political=20
discourse. Silence is not easy to explore these days: Where is total=20
silence? What it stands for? There=92s beautiful silence and
there=92s=20=

frightening silence. Does silence exist in physical terms?
