Audio Leakage Community

Audio Leakage Community (Budhaditya Chattopadhyay, Bojana Knežević, Yati Durant, and Eleni-Ira Panourgia) is an international group of artists and scholars who met as a result of an email leakage coming from an open call. With an idea to transform the precariousness of rejection into a knowledge-producing context, in which margin of the margin becomes a point of attention and gathering of collective resistance, the group approaches the potentially productive provocation titled Audio Leakage from various positions of intervention (medial, performative, political, sociological, musical, artistic, infrastructural, architectural, and transgressive, among others). The gathering develops a corpus of knowledge disseminated in collaborative performances, public interventions, artworks, workshops, scholarly panels, and publications in artistic research expositions and peer-reviewed journals. Activities include a seminar at Berlin School of Sound (ACUD, Berlin) in July 2022, a live performance at Soundings 2022, Akademie der Künste, Berlin, a workshop at IMMSANE Congress (HKU, Utrecht) 2022, a colloquium at Critical Media Lab, Basel, 2023; and a residency and performance at Ispod Bine Festival, 2023.

Upcoming: presentation at Leakage: Inaugural Conference of stsing, TU Dresden March 2024.
