// What is WHITE NOISE?//

In a society where oppression is a reality and is happening everyday to a significant percentage of the Philippine population, it is easy to equate protest to its radical tendencies. WHITE NOISE is an exhibition wherein the heart of the concept is the part of the process where each artist integrates in an urban poor community in the hope of achieving class-consciousness, and reform if not reaffirm, their understanding of protests that tackles issues that are rooted to class struggle. An oral history of the performance art piece executed in 1978, when the Philippines was under the martial rule, is also part of this show, produced in collaboration with Jose Tence Ruiz (PH). Similar to the intention of white noise in sound, that in order to mask one you have to add another thousand, there are layers upon layers of historical, physical, auditory, and spatial elements combined to achieve this exhibition’s entirety. WHITE NOISE artists include Yumiko Ishihara Hoshiba (JP), Vermont Coronel II (PH), Bru Sim (PH), Derek Tumala (PH) and The Axel Pinpin Propaganda Machine (PH).

It wasn&#8217;t until two months later, Rosa writes, during the first moments of sadness that seemed to slip in through the open window without our noticing, disturbing the rarefied atmosphere that comes with the beginning of love, that Litvinoff read to me the first pages of the History.
