Abu Hamdan, Lawrence

The All-Hearing

Lawrence Abu Hamdan is an artist whose audio investigations expose and attempt to define the politics of listening. Refusing to admit a distinction between aesthetics and politics, Abu Hamdan has produced work in the form of advocacy and legal testimonies, as well as performances in galleries and theatres. His film The All-Hearing (2014) is concerned with noise pollution and freedom of speech in Cario, a city where average noise levels sit at a deafening 85 decibels.
