Are you a karaoke star with no singing voice, a cinematographer without a camera or the next political rabble-rouser?
The Helsinki Art Museum HAM and the political film and art festival Lens Politica will join forces and organize a Speech Karaoke workshop. The participants will collectively write a speech and create a karaoke video for it. The workshop will be hosted by the members of the Speech Karaoke Action Group founded in 2010. Participants do not need to have previous experience from writing speeches or video production.
The final piece will be presented as a part of the Speech Karaoke night held on 20 November in Dubrovnik. Instead of songs, in Speech Karaoke the performers pick speech to perform The selection of karaoke videos include a wide range of well-known and unknown, current and historical, fun, but also genuinely touching speeches in several languages.
The main objective of Lens Politica festival is to act as an initiator of debate and to offer an easily accessible forum for discussion and statements on current social and political topics. The festival brings the audience together with domestic and foreign artists, film-makers and experts to discuss current social issues through film and the art.
HAM is the people of Helsinki’s own art museum, with a focus on modern and contemporary art. Its works are located around Helsinki, from parks to day care centres, and from schools to offices. HAM’s flagship location at the Tennis is currently exhibiting the works of one of the world’s most influential artists, Chinese artist Ai Weiwei.
