Description

Stolen Voices is a creative research project that uses ‘eavesdropping’ as a framework to ask: What does it mean to live in the UK now? What kind of structures got us to where we are, and how do we seek out levers for change? What are the connections between the Victorian pleasure gardens in Bournemouth, the container shipping port in Felixstowe, the refurbished marina built with EU grant money next to a former coal waste dump in East Durham, and the Aberdeen oil industry in crisis? Can attention to small details, an overheard conversation, one side of a phone conversation, tell us anything about macro dynamics?

Rebecca Collins is a lecturer in contemporary art theory at the university of Edinburgh. Johanna Linsley is a lecturer in creative practice at the university of Dundee. They share an interest in thinking about listening, sound and site.
