Acoustic Environment in the castle bunker in Mannheim as part of the group exhibition "Tiefgang – Bildräume im Schloßbunker" (Deep Draught – image spaces in the castle bunker).
The loudspeakers broadcast the personal histories of two women who experienced life in the bunker when it was in use. Their stories tell of Nazi dictatorship and second world war from the point of view of civilians. In one bunker cell the loudspeakers are networked together along the walls so that the wall speaks, whispering its story. The visitor experiences the relativity of the individual confronting historical events, the linking of memory and space in an assembly of personal oral history, forming a collective legacy.
