Do You Listen to the Driver?

Audio installation featuring train drivers’ stories

Created in Sofia and Fribourg, this is an installation that makes the invisible audible. Over the public announcement system on trains headed for the town of Bulle, passengers will get to hear the voices of the drivers, who are always there but never seen. Joséphine de Weck talks to them about their fears, their hopes, their habits, their joys and the tales they have to tell. The interviews from one city inform the interviews carried out in the other, and connections are forged between the situation in Fribourg and the Eastern Europe reality. The train is no longer an anonymous and indifferent public space but becomes the backdrop for moments filled with intimacy and confidences.

Do You ListenTo The Driver takes place in the TPF-trains between Fribourg and Bulle, with a stop and the possibility to change trains in Romont:
