This is obviously not the Phil Collins of Genesis fame, but the English video-artist, director and nominee for the Turner Prize.

“In 2013, British artist Phil Collins installed in Cologne Gulliver centre for homeless people a phone booth from which everyone could call. The phone conversations were registered and sent to a group of international musicians in order to compose original sound pieces. The songs, all collected in this double-record, were then replayed in other public booths facing the city central railway station.”

With Scritti Politti, David Sylvian, Lætitia Sadier, Damon & Naomi, Demdike Stare, Planningtorock, Maria Minerva, Heroin In Tahiti, Pye Corner Audio, Peaking Lights, Elektronische Musik aus Köln, Pluramon, Cologne Tape, and Julia Hummer.

Phil Collins (born 1970, Runcorn, England) lives in Berlin and Cologne, where he is Professor of Video Art at the Academy of Media Arts. Since the late 1990s, Phil Collins’ diverse practice has addressed the act of image-making, examining how we participate in and understand culture through the camera’s lens. Characteristic of the artist’s approach is a close engagement with place and communities.
