The Voice of a City

Nada Gambier - The Voice of a City (Lille)

Between March 2015 and the summer 2018 the artists Nada Gambier, Mark Etchells and Thomas Kasebacher travelled to several cities and regions in the north, east, south and west of Europe meeting cooks, lawyers, taxi-drivers, policemen, activists, teachers etc. During these travels they built an archive of photographs, texts, drawings, sounds and filmed footage that is now made public through a series of presentations in the form of a book, an exhibition, a performance, a writing workshop, blind-date events and more. This body of works uncovers a vision of Europe today through the subjective lens of its inhabitants whilst mixing fact, fiction, memory and interpretation.
