The other part was derived from the English word “hearsay”.” (A Voice and Nothing More, Mladen Dolar). NOA magazine III began while Mounira Al Solh was learning Dutch in the Netherlands: “I still could not really speak Dutch, and I had the brilliant ability to switch off a few minutes after someone was speaking next to me in this language. Not hearing what is being said around someone is an exercise many of us practice at times. In a language we know very well, this would be more difficult, but it is not impossible.” The idea of “switching off my ears” can help someone focus on inner issues while thinking about the complexity of limiting, hearing, or transforming language as in Louis Wolfson’s “Le Schizo et Les Langues.” These issues will be explored with a performance, exhibition, and panel discussion.
