Gram[m]ofon = Talk + podcast + performance, a series of artist talks. Journalist Mats Almegård, the Goethe-Institut and Polska Institutet welcomes a variety of prominent artist from Germany and Poland, inviting them to bring along their favourite records. The selected tracks will be listened to and discussed in front of a live audience, and the talks will also be published as podcasts.
On Norbergfestival 2017, Gram[m]ofon invites Ewa Justka to bring and talk about her most significant records.
A record player, or a Gram[m]ofon, is more than just a device that plays back music. Combine it with a record collection and you have a machine that plays back a person’s history. A record collection is a very personal thing, and when the headphones are not connected it might just gossip loudly about one’s childhood, infatuations, disappointments, joys, sorrows and passions. If a record collection could be said to be the soundtrack of your life, the record player might just tell us who you are.
Gram[m]ofon was previously called Plattenspieler and was launched in the autumn of 2013 by Mats Almegård and Goethe Institut. Gram[m]ofon at Norbergfestival 2017 made possible in collaboration with Polish Institute Stockholm.
