Whisper Session #2: Moving Some Rocks
“It is not too much to say that a ritual is more to society than words are to thought. For it is very possible to know something and then find words for it. But it is impossible to have social relations without symbolic acts.”
- Anthropologist Mary Douglas in Purity and Danger
Like great love letters, playlists connect people across decades and distances. Moving Some Rocks is specially crafted for WHISPER SESSIONS by Martin Beck, a multiform conceptual artist who works in New York City and Vienna. Beck's recent projects take collective memories of music as the basis of research into emotions, power, and paradox. Moving Some Rocks is a playlist to unwind with and a reason to gather your next Zoom listening party.
