In Another Tongue is a creative response to Angelica Mesiti’s exhibition In the Round. The event takes its lead from the exhibition’s celebration of different forms of communication: thinking across divides, borders, cultures, languages and even species. In the spirit of Mesiti’s exhibition, music will provide a means of extending voices, thoughts and information. Short talks and provocations by academics from across the University of Edinburgh will be interspersed with musical reflections by Musicians in Exile – a group of asylum-seeking and refugee musicians living in Glasgow. From evolutionary science, political ecologies, migration studies, translation, anthropology and music, In Another Tongue will be an expansive, thought-provoking evening, exploring the limits of what it means to communicate.
