Quiet sounds can be profoundly disturbing, yet loud noises can be very comforting. These experiences are not only due to the sounds but also our attitudes towards them. Physical abilities, personal experiences, social contexts, cultural conventions, and political choices can influence these attitudes toward sound. Together with artists, musicians, and activists, curator Linnea Semmerling investigated how such attitudes influence Rotterdam’s soundscape.

Material Memory is a group exhibition that traces the mechanisms of memory in the tangible, material world. The exhibition echoes the perception that all matter – be it objects, water, human- and non-human beings, or buildings – contains traces of past encounters with other sentient and non-sentient matter.
