*2022 stock* Six conversations recorded in Berlin between the artist Heimo Lattner and colleagues, focusing on the artist's research and practice, especially around the recurring theme of the voice, which Lattner's work queries as fundamental to issues concerning the formation of social and cultural identity. Would it be a mistake to think that the concern to raise the voice has to do with a capacity that certain individuals have? Would it be a mistake to think that the inclination to speak up comes from a subject whose disposition is to doubt, query, be skeptical or be an inquisitive observer? Would it be a mistake to assume that the voice lies at the core of all social bonds?

The conversations form a base for exposing key issues approached in Lattner's work, from Greek theater to city development, processes of displacement and gentrification to the re-interpretation and appropriation of cultural traditions, languages and ancient forms of communication and expression threatened by political and economical interests. At the center of the conversations is the recurring theme of the voice, which Lattner's work queries as fundamental to issues concerning the formation of social and cultural identity. Lattner asks us to consider how the voice comes to carry contested meanings
