Manuela García Aldana

Manuela García Aldana is a Colombian sound artist based in Berlin. In her process-based work (soundscapes, sound sculptures, listening collective practices and radio shows), listening is the principle and arises as a context-driven response to the search for spaces of encounter. She addresses diaspora and identity questions with the will to unlearn and remember other ways of inhabiting our collective life experience. 

She graduated in the Universidad de los Andes (Master of Arts) in Bogotá and currently studies a master’s degree at the Berlin Kunsthochschule Weissensee in spatial strategies (Raumstrategien). 

Latest works and compositions have been featured at Kunsthaus Dahlem / Brücke-Museum (Transition Exhibition), nGbK neue Gesellschaft für bildende Kunst e.V. (museo de la democracia), Errant Sound (The Listening Biennial), Real Jardín Botánico de Madrid (Pilar Millán, Simetría de los encuentros) Savvy Contemporary (Invocations For The Phoenix To Find Its Form In Us On Restitution, Rehabilitation and Reparation). 

She recently joined SAVVY Contemporary as a curatorial assistant focusing on the sonic. 

She has a monthly show at Radio Alhara (Palestine).
