Ursonate Part I

"Fümms bö wö tää zää Uu, pögiff, kwii Ee

Oooooooooooooooooooooooo

dll rrrrr beeeee bö

dll rrrrr beeeee bö fümms bö...“

 

Beginning of the  "Ursonate" by Kurt Schwitters,

In: Schwitters: Anna Blume and others 1985, S.394.

 

What happens if the system of language which determines our perception of the world around is deconstructed? How do we frame our experiences? How does our perception of what we consider “normal” change?

 

The system of shared values and believes, our world view is challenged. New questions arise. Who is eligible to speak? Who is heard?
