Public Retreat

Public Retreat uses the sounds of cities to make art that is fun
(Norway / Sweden / Denmark)

Public Retreat is: Johanna Fager (SE), Nicole Cecilie Bitsch Pedersen (DK) and Jo Mikkel Sjaastad Huse (NO).
The project examines public space in dense, modern cities. Their soundscapes, characteristics and design. Who are they made by and for? Can one see what political and philosophical currents are prevalent in the way a bench looks? Can one hear it? In the presence of certain sounds, or in the absence of others?
