Ferocous Lack Harmony, une lecture de Caspar Heinemann à 19h00
HEAD, Boulevard Helvétique 9
Salle 27, 2e étage

Dans le cadre du Séminaire "Navigating Turbulence" du Master Programme de recherche – CCC

What can poetry do for being in the world? Does poetry have an own gender? When is poetry 

transgressing gender? Can we speak of and with transpoetics? But also, how can poetry contribute to the development of vocabularies for contemporary research practices? Caspar Heinemann will read poems from their body of work, touching on themes around occultism, conspiracy, gay liberation history, counterculture, trans embodiment, biosemiotics, and critical ecology. Critical of ‘research-based poetry’, the poems are indebted to a praxis of embodied knowledge and somatic self-experimentation, rejecting the idea of representation or objective research divorced from the body. Caspar’s recent works include A BLACKBERRY SMEARED AGAINST YOUR CHEEK AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT, I like scaffolding as much as the next attempt to create order, and If you think pigeons are too common to be beautiful don’t call yourself a communist. Their first book, a homo-pastoral epic poem set in a near-future Thames Estuary, is forthcoming from Vile Troll Books.
