Sound Installation, Spirituality, Economy and Politics. Carnival, celebrated worldwide, is not only an occasion for exuberant celebration, but at the same time deeply intertwined with socio-political narratives, cultural expressions, and economic dynamics. Using research and production in the carnival strongholds of Rio de Janeiro and Cologne, the installation explores the multiple dimensions of carnival, focusing on its connections to spirituality, economics, and politics. Of central importance here are the roots of Brazilian carnival and the migration stories in Cologne and the Rhineland. The project reflects on the enduring power of carnival to unite different groups in society, celebrate cultural heritage, and transcend borders.
