Dear know-it-all, how did sentences come to exist?

Sat 11.05., 14.30-18.30h, Rakete Supporting Programme, In English

The Saturday Hangouts take place every other day of performances as part of the Rakete festival: a programme devised by various guests to pass the time, to listen and perhaps take notes in lectures, readings, workshops, listening sessions and artist talks.

This workshop, titled "Dear know-it-all, how did sentences come to exist?" and conceived by Inga Charlotte Thiele and Laura Hinrichsmeyer, is dedicated to the poet Bernadette Mayer. Based on her often dialogical writing, texts by Bernadette Mayer (among others) will be read together, writing instructions will be given and written works will be discussed. The workshop will focus in particular on Mayer’s "Writing Experiments (L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E #3, 1978)", as well as the question-and-answer exchange between Bernadette and the poet Bill Berkson, titled "What’s Your Idea of A Good Time?" which was published in 2006 and started around 1977.
