Contem­po­rary art has its own sound. Musical instru­ments that are sculp­tures at the same time repre­sent a still rela­tively unknown, recent devel­op­ment in contem­po­rary art.

Since 2012 the French artist and musician Thierry Madiot has been working on a project called WITHIN, in which he explores the possibilities for how deafness can expand the common understanding of sound based on acoustic perception in a variety of ways. Working with both deaf and hearing laypersons, as well as musicians, composers and designers, Tarek Atoui and Thierry Madiot have designed instruments that place the physical, tactile and visual perception of sounds at the fore. These open sound sessions will be accomplished with the performer Thierry Madiot.
