We share a passion for listening.
Environmental. Artistic. Research. Is what EAR is made of. EAR is a place in the world and a way of observing the world. We facilitate interdisciplinary research, art, and action to pave the way for sustainable, respectful and just communities. EAR is about exploring life with and ways of being alive. Our entry point to this exploration starts with our ears.
EAR’s home is in the historic school in Kröschenbrunnen, Emmental. EAR is a home for researchers, artists, civil society actors, and community builders and is an interlocutor for the rural and the urban, the creative and the scientific, the senses and the imaginary.
On paper, EAR’s is a non-profit association founded by sound artist Kaspar Köning.
