Benoît Maubrey, 1952, USA, based in Germany

Photo: Sofie Isaksson

Benoît Maubrey uses loudspeakers in his art and calls his sculptures electroacoustic. The speakers become building blocks in the sculptures in the same way that other artists shape from clay or wood. The speakers’ ability to convey sound gives Maubrey’s artworks an extra dimension.

Liberator brings new sound to the city, and the artist invites us all to join in. Through the sculpture’s microphone, we can sing, play music, speak on the phone or be heard on social media. We can ring Liberator and say what we think. Everything then becomes available for everyone nearby. Liberated, it booms out from hundreds of speakers.

The public are invited to express themselves on the theme of Liberation (or anything else).
