Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Sound Modernity

Investigation by Julien Verhaeghe

Summary

Lawrence Abu Hamdan’s work shows how sound devices are liable to condition individuals and establish power relationships. Sounds, noises and voices are part of what can be called “sound modernity” that the artist submits to a critical gaze. From this perspective, the artist shows true commitment. Yet, by focusing on specific situations, by adopting a position that is both specific and partial, his approach is not quite comparable to that of the so-called “engaged” artist, who asserts a position and delivers messages, nor to that of the “universal” intellectual, who speaks in the name of all.
