Founded in 2013 by Grégory Castéra and Sandra Terdjman, Council curates long-term inquiry that compose new relations between arts, sciences and social engagement. This lecture is an introduction of a future exhibition, Tacet, on politics of listening and the diversity of hearing abilities (Bergen Biennial, September 2016). It is mostly composed of excerpts of fictional and non-fictional texts selected for their approach to the un- or para- hearing worlds, wether they are biological or technical. The texts are read aloud and interpreted in sign language.
