Sahar Muradi and Zohra Saed are two Afghan American poets. This is a lyrical conversation between Sahar who returned to retrace footsteps in Afghanistan and Zohra who remained ensconced in longing for mythic cities of her birth. As a prelude to the 2012 exhibition, dOCUMENTA (13) and Hatje Cantz published a series of notebooks, 100 Notes – 100 Thoughts, that comprised facsimiles of existing notebooks, commissioned essays, collaborations, and conversations. A note is a trace, a word, a drawing that all of a sudden becomes part of thinking, and is transformed into an idea. This publication project follows that path, presenting the ...
William Gibson’s poem played from a 3½-inch diskette on a 1992-era Mac computer running the System 7 operating system. When the diskette ran, the text of the poem scrolled up the screen (accompanied by infrequent sound effects: a camera shutter click, a gun going off) while an encryption program on the diskette encoded each line and made the poem “disappear” after its first reading. On December 9, 2008—the sixteenth anniversary of the original “Transmission” event debuting Agrippa—The Agrippa Files was aided by the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities and the Digital Forensics Lab at University of Maryland, College Park, ...
Philosophical thoughts by birds, drawn and put into words by the artist. „Birds“ was inspired by Jim Goldberg’s „Rich and Poor“, a collection of photographs of rich and poor Americans, each with a handwritten statement by the subject, thereby creating a heart gripping portrait of the USA. It was a logical step to have an ornithologist (a fictional ornithologist) portrait birds in a similar way, for they have just as much to say about the human condition. If people would only listen. “I have no idea what people think of me, I don’t think much of them, that’s for sure. Life is a bitch for ...

“no more sensations; nothing but memories” E.M. Cioran I make copies on the English Department xerox machine and pass them out to my students. “Civil Disobedience” by Thoreau, “Self-Reliance” by Emerson. Of course, the students can nd the same texts on the internet, but I prefer not to allow cellphones in class. I prefer not to. I can see you texting in the back of the room, under your desk, while pretending to pay attention, and sometimes, even though it says “cellphones are forbidden during class” on the syllabus, you take out your phone, right in front of me, in broad daylight, so ...

A story burns its presence on your skin, like the gazing eye in a photograph. You feel your own bareness and insecurity. You know what your love is worth: a great sacrifice: whatever it takes, to remain committed. The thought of dying often crosses your mind. And yet. Hope returns. Hope and survival are not discussed as a binary. If your life is full of holes, it is better than no life at all. Hope does not function as a feel-good supplement. It is like a thrust, a living-on, an anchorage.

Ted is a poet and professor in town to give a reading at Artists Space, he also happens to be one of my oldest friends. Here we discuss the relationship between government, fascism and free speech, how to disrupt networks through writing and his time living on trains and in the back of a truck as a physical form of the same network defying protest. He also reads from his new manuscript “The Economy Disappears” and soon to be published book “Thanksgiving” coming out on Golias Books this spring.

Sara Jordenö is a NYC based Swedish visual artist and documentary filmmaker. Using film, photography, drawing and experimental poetry, Jordenö aims to work through historical and contemporary narrations around issues of authorship, labor, real and imaginary queer spaces and the habitual acts of everyday life. While being a resident at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Workspace program in 2010-2011 she started working on a series of works about urban life in New York City, titled “Time and Motion Studies”. This in turn prompted her to enter collaborations with people in other fields than contemporary art.
Twice a year since 2011, The Serving Library has assembled a set of individual ”bulletins” on a common theme, made PDFs available to download for free at, and simultaneously published them in print as Bulletins of The Serving Library. Last fall we started to turn on a yearly cycle instead, uploading the new batch of files throughout September, and releasing a half-as-frequent-and-twice-as-big print edition in collaboration with Amsterdam-based Roma Publications. This year’s Annual is guest-edited by Italian novelist and translator Vincenzo Latronico and explores how *translation* is fast becoming a significant site for the negotiation of identities and power dynamics ...

It’s so amazing how a single piece of music can become so powerful in so many different versions That’s the case with “This Woman’s Work” by the great Kate Bush, which was released over 20 years ago and still going strong! She had success with it in 1988 when John Hughes used it in a critical scene in his She’s Having a Baby and again when it was released as a single in 1989. Then Maxwell released his amazing male version of the song, which led to its use in the incredible dance tribute to breast cancer awareness on So You Think You Can Dance Countless dance acts have ...

Words sit on the page differently if they first existed as sound versus writing; they crystallize differently. I’ve been thinking about this a lot recently in relation to scores, feeling a little suspicious of writing things down, and wanting to take a step back to review what happens when sound is transduced into image. I’ve gotten interested in orality studies because the relationship of literacy and orality seems to have a lot in common with the relationship of notated music and aurally-composed music. In the 1930s, Milman Parry upended long-held assumptions about the past by demonstrating that the Homeric epics were ...
PublisherTriple Canopy2019

Is there anyone around to see that I am OK?” A series of poems and letters that reflects on mortality, friendship, and psychic survival. “Wake to Dread” by Gregg Bordowitz is part of Risk Pool, the twenty-fourth issue of Triple Canopy, that asks: how are sickness and wellness defined, and by whom? What are the effects of these definitions, these acts of naming and describing?
