"With this event, we would like to show that it pays to read these appropriated texts," said Annette Gilbert. The artists who will present their works during the reading, represent different forms of appropriation. The British artist Simon Morris will use four of his experimental works – based on Freud, Kerouac, and Perec – to design a poetics of a different reading: Eating the Book. Jérémie Bennequin, an artist from France, will present his new book OMAGE à Broodthaers et Mallarmé. Michalis Pichler from Germany will present his versions of Mallarmé's Würfelwurf and Statements zur Appropriation as well as poems and other postnative manifestations. The Swedish soundpoet Pär Thörn and the Berlin dancer Takako Suzuki wil do an audio-visual presentation on the alphabetically ordered word material from Strindberg's novel Röda rummet (The Red Room).
This event of the Literaturwerkstatt Berlin is being supported by Freie Universität Berlin and the Volkswagen Foundation.
