Anna Raimondo

ANNA RAIMONDO is a sound and visual artist. She considers her work to be a medium for encounters and exchanges. It can be defined as a journey that illustrates diversity while creating possible areas of interaction. Her method is flexible and variable, accepting the accidental as the unforeseeable.

On her practice, Raimondo says:


I am a radio creature. Through radio, I learned to formulate questions, to open up and share the microphone, and, above all, to listen. In radio, I experienced the uniqueness of each voice and the value of silence. I experimented with gathering a community around specific questions, engaging both embodied and invisible audiences. I spoke in a constant tension between intimacy and intimidation, driven by a desire to create a form of engagement with the listener(s) and an awareness of the power of turning the microphone on and off. In radio, I navigated the implications of having an accent— exploring the possibilities, impossibilities, and poetry behind translation. I learned how to substitute sound instead of words to communicate. In radio, I discovered feminism and became a feminist myself. I used radio to explore listening as a feminist tool to question and narrate reality. Today, as an artist, I remain a feminist radio creature. I am particularly interested in the concept of what I define as “gendered listening” and its potential as a tool to activate narratives in urban spaces and to imagine the ways in which we want to inhabit them. In my work, I invite people to listen, whether they are on the street, in a museum, a gallery, or a bus stop.”


Anna Raimondo lives in Brussels and works internationally. Currently she is pursuing her doctoral research on listening and its relation to urban geography from a feminist intersectional perspective.

Together with writer Julie Ruocco in the framework of MOUSSEM STAGES (6-21.10.23), Raimondo organized the workshop A Love Letter, in which participants experimented with collective writing and polyphonic reading to formulate a love letter to themselves. A Love Letter pursued a common reflection on care as both an intimate and political act.
