mendel revisited

soundscape for lecture performance/loops 12 x 1`/2022
text: angela wiedermann
performance: angela wiedermann & beatrice kretzer

A soundscape constructed with recordings of the clip supercomputer – the data center of the research cluster Biocenter Vienna – accompanies, fragments and disturbs the performance while mirroring the architectural struktur of the monument and its surroundings.The intervention „mendel revisited“ encases the central pillar of the Mendel Monument in Vienna and adds two more plaques to the memorial:
One remindes of the research work of the first female geneticists, whose merits were systematically ignored by the research establishment or unlawfully appropriated by male colleagues.
The second panel reminds about the ethical responsibility when using genetic engineering processes.
