    Join guest curators Joel Stern and James Parker to hear insights to the research that led to the Eavesdropping project, how the exhibition was conceived, and the multitude of local and international artists, musicians, sound technicians, performers and speakers that have come together to contribute to this investigation of the politics of listening and being listened to.


    Joel Stern is a curator, researcher and sound artist, concerned with theories and prac­tices of sound and listening. 

    James Parker is the Direc­tor of a research pro­gram on law and sound  at the Institute for Inter­na­tional Law and the Humanities (IILAH) at Mel­bourne Law School. His research focuses on the relations between law, sound and listening, with a particular emphasis on international criminal law, the law of war and privacy.
