On Translation: The Audience is the title of the project that Muntadas has developed with Witte de With in various institutions in the city of Rotterdam. This publication develops and explores essential aspects of the new work, through notions related to the concepts of translation, reception, and interpretation in today’s culture. If the field of the action is limited to institutions, the project appeals to the critical capacity of the public to convert perception into meaning.
