Laia Estruch and Irina Mutt workshop, Today Is Our Tomorrow, PUBLICS, Helsinki, 8 October 2022

Within the context of PUBLICS’ annual gathering Today Is Our Tomorrow, Laia Estruch and Irina Mutt will lead a workshop as part of this year’s programme focusing on the presentness of the voice in its many sonic forms, vocal modes and acoustic modalities.

This workshop culminates a series of encounters, part of Latitudes’ Parahosting at PUBLICS, that have taken place over the summer in collaboration with PUBLICS Youth, an education initiative for Helsinki-based 18-21-year-olds.

Following a principle of a tour to bodies rather than to space, the sessions have encompassed new embodiments of Estruch’s “Ocells Perduts” (Stray Birds) (2021), a work originally produced for MACBA’s exhibition “Panorama 21. Notes for an Eye Fire”, curated by Hiuwai Chu and Latitudes, and supported by PUBLICS.


Podcast “Minor Ornithologies” for TBA21 on st_age, conducted by Max Andrews with Laia Estruch, Alex Holt and Dr. Hollis Taylor

The podcast “Minor Ornithologies”, accompanying Laia Estruch’s performance for TBA21 on st_age, is hosted by curator, writer, and lifelong birder Max Andrews of Latitudes. It takes flight into the realm of birds, looking at politics and practices that disrupt dominant historical narratives and exceed scientific and cultural boundaries.

The podcast’s guests are Alex Holt, a spokesperson for Bird Names for Birds, a movement to decolonise bird names, and zoömusicologist Dr Hollis Taylor who specialises in birdsong. Through their perspectives we glimpse new and speculative kinds of human–bird narratives; what we might call “minor” ornithologies.
