Friday 26, 1-2:15 pm: F104—Antonin Artaud’s “Poetics of Cruelty” for Contemporary Writers. Jamerson Maurer, Clayton Eshleman, Judith E. Johnson, Pierre Joris, Aim Ali . Antonin Artaud remains an extremely marginalized figure of Modernism. His theories on a Theater of Cruelty, his poetry, and his performance art attempted to release the “shadows” of life, and destroy the effigies causing the ills of society. The panel will discuss Artaud from many points of view—translation, performance art, poetics, modern-day influence, and the critical & theoretical discourse on his work—and propose that contemporary writers find strong transformative values in his poetics.
Friday 26, 7:30 p.m.: Poetry Reading organized by Circumference magazine to protest the fact that “the U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control recently declared that American publishers cannot edit works authored in nations under trade embargoes which include Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Libya and Cuba.” Delilah’s Bar, 2771 North Lincoln Avenue.
