“A line is a dot that went for a walk" (Paul Klee) and keeps on going, spiraling, morphing into texts and books, graphics and typography, maps and topography, drawings and moving images, collages/assemblages and objects, music and sound, a line made by walking, a picket line and lines of code.
Inspired by Paul Klee's quote, metaMorph points to the ongoing synthesis between media initiated by the concrete poetry movement that continues in other art forms today, and relates to what art theorist Rosalind Krauss has called the 'post-medium condition', an entwined helix of genres and modes of production that holds unending potential for contemporary creativity.
Moving fluidly between the visual/visible, phonetic/sonic and gestural/performative manifestations of language, the participating poets will experiment with multivocality, multilingualism, spoken word, rhythm, time, narrative and noise, ultimately contributing to the potential of the poetic voice to re-enchant the world.
Friday 19 May 8.30pm @ POINT (Str. G-ral Eremia Grigorescu 10 - Bucharest)

* The admiral is the main character of the simultaneous poem „L'amiral cherche une maison à louer” (The admiral looks for a house to rent), created and performed by Tristan Tzara, Richard Huelsenbeck and Marcel Janco at Cabaret Voltaire on 31st March 1916. A day after the premiere, Hugo Ball wrote in his diary: “All the styles of the last twenty years came together yesterday. In a typically compressed way, Tzara's poem shows the conflict of the vox humana with a world that threatens, ensnares, and destroys it, a world whose rhythm and noise are ineluctable”.
