Christopher Rollen: Vox Pop

  • 13 August — 3 September 2016 *on now

In ‘Vox Pop’, Christopher Rollen explores various ways of presenting both personal and collective histories. Doegen Revisited (2012-15) is an audio-visual archive of sixty-six etchings and recordings of Berlin-based British expatriates' voices made in response to the sixty-six British and Irish voices in Wilhelm Doegen’s Lautarchiv (sound archive), recorded between 1916 and 1918 and held on shellac vinyl records at Berlin’s Humboldt Universität.

Also presented are four of Rollen’s video works which explore how history influences our present both in terms of personal identity and the complexities of geo-political relationships.
