The Bloomsbury Handbook of Sound Art explores and delineates what Sound Art is in the 21st century. Sound artworks today embody the contemporary and transcultural trends towards the post-apocalyptic, a wide sensorial spectrum of sonic imaginaries as well as the decolonization and deinstitutionalization around the making of sound. Within the areas of musicology, art history, and, later, sound studies, Sound Art has evolved at least since the 1980s into a turbulant field of academic critique and aesthetic analysis. Summoning artists, researchers, curators, and critics, this volume takes note of and reflects the most recent shifts and drifts in Sound Art--rooted in sonic histories and implying future trajectories.

How can we rethink anthropology beyond itself? In this book, twenty-one artists, anthropologists, and curators grapple with how anthropology has been formulated, thought, and practised ‘elsewhere’ and ‘otherwise’. They do so by unfolding ethnographic case studies from Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Poland – and through conversations that expand these geographies and genealogies of contemporary exhibition-making. This collection considers where and how anthropology is troubled, mobilised, and rendered meaningful. Across Anthropology charts new ground by analysing the convergences of museums, curatorial practice, and Europe’s reckoning with its colonial legacies. Situated amid resurgent debates on nationalism and identity politics, this book addresses scholars and practitioners in fields spanning the arts, social sciences, humanities, and curatorial studies.

In what position do African emigrants in Europe find themselves today? The Nigerian artist Emeka Ogboh (b. 1977) addresses this question in his new publication, which is being published in conjunction with his first big solo exhibition.His work deals intensively with the topic of immigration and his own experiences of this. He does this by connecting peoples and places with tastes and sounds. As a sound and installation artist, he is best known for his soundscapes of life in Lagos.For his exhibition at the Staatliche Kunsthalle, he also produced numerous site-related works concentrating on the sense of taste and, for example, brewed a version of the meanwhile legendary beer Sufferhead Original. The artist consequently manages to create a picture of a cosmopolitan society that deals self-confidently with roots, influences, and spaces in-between.Published on the occasion of the exhibition, Emeka Ogboh: If Found Please Return to Lagos at Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, Germany (11 November 2017 - 4 February 2018).English and German text.
