Piano burning

Linnaeus University Live: Sustainable art & performance

Musical instruments are special things. There are reactions when electric guitars are broken or pianos are burned. But what happens when artists place musical instruments outdoors, burn them or let them decay in ponds, play already abandoned instruments and/or make new instruments from found materials?

Heidi Hart and Beate Schirrmacher show examples of these artworks and discuss how they help us think in new ways about human culture in the natural world.
