AMT Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Robert Sember-Ultrared

7:00 p.m.

Robert Sember is a member of the international sound-art collective, Ultra-red. Ultra-red investigates how experimental sound art can contribute to political organizing within the communities where the collective’s eleven members are situated. Their work includes concerns related to immigrants’ and migrants’ rights, housing access, sexual and gender rights, and anti-racism and anti-poverty struggles. Ultra-red approach sound as the cause of the desire to listen rather than as an end in itself and are committed, therefore, to long-term projects that employ listening as part of constituencies’ struggles. Robert brings to his work with Ultra-red training in cultural studies, medical anthropology and art, and ongoing involvement in the field of public health. In recent years Robert has taught in the Department of World Arts and Cultures at the University of California in Los Angeles, the Center for HIV/AIDS Networking at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, the Summer Institute on Sexuality, Culture and Society at the University of Amsterdam’s Graduate School of Social Sciences, and the School of Theater at Ohio University.
