Neukölln is by no means quiet. On the contrary – the district is vibrantly alive in many places. If you put all the noises together, a deafening roar would result: noise. In German, noise means “crack”, “deafening noise”, but also simply “sound”.
As a sound effect, noise describes the accumulation of all frequencies of noise into a single noise. Paradoxically, this noise can be calming. It is vaguely reminiscent of a rushing river, wind or waves and thus refers to the places of time out and silence that are rare in the city. Based on the sounds of the district, we will create a soundscape that moves in waves between concrete urbanity and universal noise and includes the diversity of all voices, tones and sounds in the district.


Paula Oltmann, Emanuel Strauß

The collective >stroll, consisting of Paula Oltmann and Emanuel Strauß, is dedicated to examining the surrounding space at the interface of sound and landscape.

Emanuel Strauß (*1997 in Hamburg) has been studying fine art with Monika Bonvicini at the Berlin University of the Arts since 2022. His mostly site-specific interventions, sculptures and installations deal with the process nature of functional, mechanical processes and the irregularities and errors that can be found therein.

Paula Oltmann (*1997 in Kiel) is currently studying for a master's degree with Ina Weber at the University of the Arts in Berlin. In her sculptures and installations, Oltmann is currently examining the relevance of the concept of nature and the negotiation of narratives about landscape over time.
