Time to Listen, Space to Experiment highlights the legacy and the outcomes of Re-Imagine Europe, a four-year project involving ten cultural organisations from across Europe. With a programme of residencies, commissions, symposia, and workshops, Re-Imagine Europe engaged audiences through art with the social and political challenges that are decisive for Europe’s future, such as climate change, rising nationalism, and migration. The project partners—Sonic Acts and Paradiso from Amsterdam, Elevate from Graz, Lighthouse from Brighton, INA GRM from Paris, Bergen Kunsthall from Bergen, A4 from Bratislava, KONTEIJNER from Zagreb, Disruption Network Lab from Berlin, and Radio Web MACBA from Barcelona—commissioned new interdisciplinary and experimental works to address these issues, contributing to a more democratic and resilient European society.

Time to Listen, Space to Experiment contains in-depth interviews with artists such as Jennifer Walshe, AM Kanngieser, Nikima Jagudajev, Barby Asante, BJ Nilsen, Maja Ahti, and Kali Malone, and essays on works and projects such as WIWMAVGAIWLDSAATCWA, The Informals, Persuasion Lab, Steal This Poster, and MOHTA. The book opens with a conversation between Anna Ramos, Lucas van der Velden, and François Bonnet about the importance of experimentation in the arts, and how such experiments can be relevant for society.

The book celebrates a diversity of art practices and approaches, ranging from experimental electronic music to political activism, from audiovisual installations to interventions, and from conferences to workshops for children, providing insight into the interdisciplinary experimental arts in Europe. In different ways all of these practices and approaches testify to a critical attitude regarding the current social and political challenges.
