Four Easy Pieces: No. 2 A Dead Sentence Here and Abroad
Casco starts the new cultural season with ‘Four Easy Pieces’. In the month of September the opening will be performed over and over again, as a repetitive motive. One artist, two designers and an artists' group present the ultimate opening, without anything actually being opened. The opening is the project.
A Dead Sentence Here and Abroad
by Bernadette Corporation
11 September 2004, 17.00 – 20.00
On the third anniversary of Kapitalismus Suicide, Casco is excited to announce a voices-of-free-style-experience & eclectic sounds listening party for:
'A Dead Sentence Here and Abroad' spoken word CD by Bernadette Corporation & Friends dedicated to exploring the world of covert direct action today.
The CD features website-downloaded poems, manifestoes, music and stories as well as traditional prayers. The music comes from the African, Latin American, Jazz, Arabic and Hip Hop traditions.
Bernadette Corporation is a dedicated lover, griotte, poet and scribe, and director of media based in Berlin-Paris-Rome. Her work has been published in literary journals, anthologies and audio recordings. Her long spoken word performance history has taken her to stages large and small, to public access television and radio and to prisons and schools. She has performed alongside poets, dancers, visual artists and musicians such as Werner von Delmont and Chloe Sevigny. As exhibiting contemporary artist, she has published her own chapbooks, produced and promoted literary events since 1996 and is currently putting the finishing touches on a collaborative novel to be published by Semiotexte in late 2004.
'A Dead Sentence Here and Abroad' will be published by Casco in an edition of 500 CD’s and available for sale soon. The first 25 visitors to the party on 11 September will receive a free copy.
Open mike for spoken word and poetry.
