about the author

Åsa Stjerna is a Swedish sound artist who uses sound and listening as artistic media in the exploration of public space. Through her site-specific sound installations, she explores the often hidden underlying historic, social, and political structures connected to a place, making these perceivable. Stjerna has participated in a number of exhibitions in Sweden and internationally. Her recent works and exhibitions include a permanent sound installation at the Swedish Institute in Paris commissioned by the Swedish Art Agency (2014), and works presented at the Transmediale Media Festival, Berlin (2013), Nordic Music Days, Stockholm (2012, the Ultima Contemporary Music Festival, Oslo (2011), and the Akademie der Künste, Berlin (2009). Stjerna is currently a PhD student at the Academy of Music and Drama at University of Gothenburg.
