Poetry by STEFAN SCHMITZER, RONALD POHL and FISTON MWANZA-MUJILA
Musical improvisation by VIOLA HAMMER (keyb.) and PATRICK DUNST (sax)
Three striking positions of contemporary poetry are united not only by their transgressive tendency into the musical. Elementary motifs from astronomy, volcanism, mythology or animistic magic condense with linguistic material from media and high-tech to image and sound spaces in which existential problems, social and economic contradictions become perceptible in all their monstrous force. In the mode of linguistic-musical transgression, utopian counter-designs resound.
