Cardamomyang: Bringing North Korea to Norway

Students from Kum Song Music School in Pyongyang.

Vito Acconci
"Audio from Under-History Lessons (1976)"

sound shower

The installation Under-History Lessons was first presented at P.S.1, New York in 1976. The following is Vito Acconci’s description of the work:

The boiler-room of an old schoolhouse, converted into an alternative art-space. You go down a stairway into the boiler-room. In front of the boiler, and separating the boiler from the viewer’s entry, is a pit about two feet deep, like am empty swimming pool. Four wood planks, painted black, are laid down over the length of the pit. Six wood stools, very low and painted black, are placed in front of each plank. The existent electric cords, from the ceiling, are lowered so that two bare bulbs fit in-between the planks, in-between the stools, on either side, nearly touching the ground. These are the tables and stools of a schoolroom, at the base of the school. This is a schoolroom at your feet; you can step down into it, you can fall down into it. From under the tables comes an audio sound-track, like the traces of a learning exercise. From one corner, in the front, my voice announces a subject: ‘Lesson Number 1: Let’s be suckers...’ From the opposite corner, at the back, my voice re-iterates: ‘Ready: Let’s be suckers...’ From both corners, my voice talks with itself and becomes the multiple voices of students: ‘All right: We-are-suckers... Repeat: We-are-suck-ers...Again: Mm-mm-mm-mm...
