Based on examples from Marie Koldkjær Højlund's previous research in public space, hospitals and within the art world, this talk will discuss what different types of knowledge, methods, output and impact art- and design-based research can (and cannot) contribute to in an effort to address complex societal issues. Working with sound design, music composition and sound art in various public spaces and across art forms call for an ecological and enactive methodology entailing investigations of actors and their interrelations with their respective environments as attuning and explorative sonic citizens.


Marie Koldkjær Højlund is Associate Professor of Sound Studies at Audio Design, Aarhus University, Denmark. PhD in Audio Design with a dissertation about sound and noise in Danish Hospitals entitled “Overhearing - An Attuning Approach to Noise in Danish Hospitals” (2017).
