Beyond Bodies

What happens when I speak my body into space? Can I transfer it into an alternative state? Demarginalize it? Expand or dissolve its boundaries? Multiply it? Heal it? At Poets’ Corner Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg in the Bezirkszentralbibliothek Pablo Neruda, a preoccupation with the body meets an interest in orality, performance, and transdisciplinarity. The female body, the maternal body, the Black body, the injured body become the starting points of a poetic speech that begins where language always already originates – in the body – and that attempts to open up new spaces in which it can unfold.


Music and poetry: Isasi Armengod
