Voice, body, politics with Cally Spooner (2014)

Artist and writer Cally Spooner explores the idea of an usurped voice; the transferral of the voice from a live body to a technical body, and the hire body as a technology. She speaks about her collaborative work in the visual arts – a practice which contrasts with the field’s general emphasis on solo making. She speaks about her work, ‘And you were wonderful, on stage’ and how she drew on theories from political philosophers Hannah Arendt and Paolo Virno in creating work with a political voice.
