Art Laboratory Berlin is glad to launch a new Podcast Channel SONIC ECOLOGIES starting in 2023, supported by the Berlin Senate. The podcast series was conceived by Tuçe Erel, with composition and production by Korhan Erel. Each year the podcast will have a special theme, and the subject matter of 2023 will complement the series Permeable Bodies. Each curatorial team member – Regine Rapp, Christian de Lutz, Tuçe Erel – interviews artists and scientists, and the series will spread throughout the year. The podcasts, which are around 20 minutes each, are scheduled and published every last Tuesday of May, June, September, October and November.
In our interview series for 2023, we would like to inform our audience about our guest artists and scientists as well as the researchers’ interest and how their focus is relevant to our series Permeable Bodies. Our program Permeable Bodies deals with the human body, especially women’s bodies, and their metamorphosis under the biopolitics and body politics of the Capitalocene.
The podcasts are available here below – in chronological order (the most current on top). You can also access them on Art Laboratory Berlin’s Spotify platform: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/artlaboratoryberlin.

Introductory Episode | About Art Laboratory Berlin’s team
In this introductory episode we introduce the Art Laboratory Berlin team members – Tuçe Erel, Regine Rapp, Christian de Lutz – and the Sonic Ecologies podcast series.
In our new series we present artistic and feminist explorations of embodiment and identity in flux, as well as an investigation of our interconnection and interaction with the environment around us. With reading groups, talks, workshops and podcasts we propose a net of narratives of permeability to encompass a poetic (post)natural history of being woman throughout 2023.Read more
