The end of an era – in & out

Sound description
“The end of an era” is an audio-walk composition based on the written correspondence of Walter Benjamin with Gretel Karplus (later, Gretel Adorno) and Theodor Adorno, 1933-1940. Excerpts from the extensive mail correspondence together with fragments of their literary influences (translated in English and in spoken word), are composed in an itinerary that links together various landmarks in Portbou, where Walter Benjamin’s legacy dwells vividly, as his last place of residence. The audio-walk was originally presented as a geo-located composition, still accesible in Portbou through locative media platform. (résumé d'auteures)
