Artist’s Book Lectures and Performance in Vilnius Academy of Arts
Prof. Joseph Johannes Visser has given a lecture at Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts. This included a reading of the poem and playing the sketches for piano as composed by himself on this theme.
The theme of Prof. Joseph Johannes Visser was “The Geo Milev – SEPTEMVRI Project”.
An artist’s-book with the complete poem in linocut-prints & the new translations into English and Dutch by Joseph J. Visser, and into German by Monika Goetze of ‘SEPTEMVRI’, a Poem by Geo Milev (Bulgaria, 1885 – 1925), a true modern-European philosopher, as it was executed and published in 2011 in a cooperative effort of ‘carpe plumbum’, Leipzig, Germany and ‘Atelier It Plein 19′ – Easterlittens, The Netherlands. The poem is a cry for a humane society, as a reaction against the violence used by government-forces when bringing down the September-uprising against the self-appointed fascist regime”.
Prof. Hanne Matthiesen has given a lecture at Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts.
The theme of Prof. Hanne Matthiesen was “Art as Communication”. A reflection on ideas, concepts and resources. A presentation of passed, as well as ongoing works, projects and collaborations.
