Our Director and Chief Curator will be appearing twice at the upcoming Sonic Boom Friday late at the V&A museum in London on 22 February!
First, Director Kannenberg will be participating in a panel discussion, ‘How Do You Listen In Museums?’ alongside V&A visiting researcher Eric de Visscher and V&A Senior Curator for Contemporary Design Corinna Gardner.
Following the talk, the Museum of Portable Sound will be available to be visited in one of the V&A’s galleries for the remainder of the evening. We will provide headphones for up to five people to listen to the museum simultaneously!
