I morgen i Århus (argh! hvem der var der!)

Den franske konceptdigter Jacques Jouet er i byen, og i den forbindelse inviterer Aarhus Litteraturcenter til en aften i konceptdigtningens tegn. Jouet er medlem af gruppen Oulipo – en samling af digtere og matematikere, der leger med sprogets strukturer på spændende og sjove måder. Jouet vil bl.a. læse op af nogle af de digte han skriver i løbet af sit ophold i Aarhus.

På scenen får Jouet selskab af de to danske digtere Martin Larsen og Christian Yde Frostholm, som begge har arbejdet konceptuelt med udgangspunkt i nogle af de samme metoder som Jouet. Aftenen består først af oplæsninger fra de tre forfattere efterfulgt af en samtale om konceptuel digtning, Oulipo og forholdet til Paris.

Lektor i Fransk Litteratur ved Aarhus Universitet, Steen Bille Jørgensen, vil styre begivenhederne, og sørge for, at alle kan følge med - selvom man ikke kan fransk.

Arrangementet finder sted i Vogn 1 på Godsbanen.

Jacques Jouet er i Aarhus i forbindelse med Fresh Eyes-projektet, som er en del af Kulturby 2017 og laves i samarbejde mellem Galleri Image og Aarhus Litteraturcenter. Fresh Eyes inviterer løbende forfattere og fotokunstnere til Aarhus, hvor de får til opgave at se på byen med friske øjne i originale værker. Nogle af de dugfriske tekster som Jouet komponerer i denne forbindelse vil blive læst op på scenen.

It has also been alleged

He will have to supply his own example.
I cannot say for any one

what moral question
has troubled him most.

Even if it could be proved by experiment
that whenever the blood of a German
has a certain chemical
added to it
it turns purple,
and that this is so
with the blood
of no other race,
it is thereby established
that any moral
consequences follow
from this.

If he cannot think
of any example,
he will not understand
this book, and may as well
postpone the reading of it
until he has lived
a little longer.

CFP: CONCEPTUAL WRITING (PLURAL AND GLOBAL) AND OTHER CULTURAL PRODUCTIONS.

This is a Call for Writing: Conceptual Writing (plural and global) and Other Cultural Productions (500 to 800 words) for Jacket 2.
A couple of weeks ago, many responses to Katie L. Price’s valuable recent compilation of viewpoints on Jacket2, “What is the relationship between Conceptual Art and Conceptual Writing?” began circulating online and on Facebook. These led to discussions that were eye opening and inspiring, and they prompted me to do more thinking (and feeling) about the place of my own practice in this world, and about my own civic roles as a scholar and editor. I promised myself that I would move beyond gesturing towards more inclusive conversations and actually do something. I decided that I would change the nature of the question in order to seek alternative answers that represented a broader and more diverse array of practitioners across mediums and geographies.
So, after discussion with the editors, Julia Bloch and Jessica Lowenthal over at Jacket2, I have decided to further a discussion prompted by a question that travels in another direction, gathering up other sub-questions as it does: "What is the relationship between what-could-be-considered Conceptual Writing (plural and global) and other cultural productions?”

The goals here are:
1) To pluralize and expand the field of influences for contemporary conceptual or conceptual-like writing
2) To create records of aesthetic and political genealogies that resonate as true and lived for practitioners
3) To articulate the critique of dominant and hegemonic genealogies or histories associated with contemporary conceptual and conceptual-like writing
I am contacting you in the hopes that you’d like to contribute a short response (500 to 800 words) to this call for writing. This is a very limited word count, admittedly, but my aim is to collect as many view points as possible and to feature these as quickly as possible. Please consider this the initial step in the longer and continuous journey of telling and claiming history.
Aspects/Foci:
- Theories of the avant-garde and alternative temporalities
- Alternative and non-western concepts of innovation
- Low-innovation and anti-aesthetic innovation
- Connections between conceptual writing and other underrepresented aesthetic mediums: dance, music, textiles, decorative arts, folk craft, outsider practices,
- Connections between conceptual writing and other non-represented cultural practices: religious ritual, non-religious ritual, domestic spheres, social activism, psychoanalytic and non-psychoanalitic therapy
- Race and ethnic identity, indigeneity, and non-identity politics, and the question of intersectional difference
- Biographical narratives, familial identity, and subjective impressions of influence
- Genealogies of affect; trajectories of emotional aspects of praxis
- Sexuality, bodily practice, desire and subjectivity
- Low-art, pop, mass products, non-art
- National identities and transnational relationships/non-relationships, and the politics of migrancy, itinerancy, vagrancy
- Postcolonial implications and settler/non-settler politics
- Anthropology, social work, ethnography
- All other aspects that you sense are not represented in already existing accounts
Responses that are particularly welcome and in short supply:
Responses which focus on close readings of single texts (however ‘closeness' may be defined)
Responses which focus on unread, underrepresented practitioners in minorized relation to institutions (through race, class, sexuality, politics, gender, and intersections of these)
Responses which speak of your own practice and life
Responses which do comparative readings of a poetic text and a text outside the field of poetry
Responses which link private life to public practice
Immediate action: Please write back to express interest as soon as possible. Please also let me know if you can’t invest at this moment. Please circulate this to others who may be invested in this discussion.
Other actions: Compose

Due date: March 20, 2015.

Submission: Please email your response of 500 to 800 words in a document to me. Please follow, to your best ability, the style guide provided by Jacket2. The guidelines are flexible particularly around citations, but Jacket2 asks that all sources be cited. J2 is unable to run epigraphs or section titles because of design limits. If you would like to include images or multimedia links to already existing online content, please do so.
