Hearing Voices Café

Open meeting and talks organized by Dora García and Caroline von Taysen in collaboration with LET THERE BE_

The Hearing Voices Café could actually apply to the buzz of conversations that characterize any well-patronized coffee shop. The phrase “hearing voices” is also associated with the phenomenon of hearing inner voices. Drawing on the ambiguity of the term, the Spanish artist Dora García creates a gathering place for people who hear voices, their family and friends, people interested in the phenomenon, and coincidental guests.
