Moving away from the traditional concept of audience, in my presentation next Saturday 21st May it will be introduced the expression «citizen of the work». The citizen is not a specialist viewer, nor a trained audience that approaches the artwork, but someone walking through the city that discovers the elements of the artwork and, in doing so, activates his aesthetic perception of the space. In some sense they turn into dwellers of the work. This factor provokes a new relationship of the citizenship with the urban environment and its complexity. This relationship, which is produced through the sounds in the area of our concerns, represents a radical change in the articulation of the artwork in the public space and also in the discourses that it generates in connection with the urban environment and in this case with the acoustic ecology.
