As part of "Is Misunderstanding Misunderstood?" and the 3rd Ghetto Biennial, Danish art collective invited all the participants of the event to display their Apple products in one of the sites the biennial next to the recuperation sculpture that were on show. The project had the ingenious title "ighetto." More info soon.

Four Concerts in the Zone

Dungeon Acid and Jean Claude Saintilus performing in Port-au-Prince
Jean-Louis Huhta/Dungeon Acid have performed four times. First performance was a collaborative improvisation with Per Hüttner where they mixed the sounds of the interviews carried out in "Is Misunderstanding Misunderstood?" and the sounds of Huttner playing the cage. The second was a collaboration with artist and voodoo drummer Jean Claude Saintilus. The third concert was an MC session with local artist and rapper Adler Pierre and the final concert was a collaboration between Dungeon Acid, Joyce Ip, Nanna Dalunde och Roberto Peyre. The performances lasted as long as 2,5hrs and slowly became street parties where the Haitian audience enjoyed music and life with their foreign guests.

Jean Claude Saintilus listening to his interview.

Interviewing people (artists, visitors and others) in the neighbourhood of the Ghetto Biennale and also the foreign participants forms a central part of "Is Misunderstanding Misunderstood?" and our work in Haiti. These interviews are going to be mixed into a portrait of the block or "Le collier de voix," like Syndia says in her interview. On this page you will find the interviews unedited and in their entirety. We see this as an important resource for understanding Haitian life and art. Most interviews are performed in French and Creole.
