Fehler lesen. Korrektur als Textproduktion

Please feel invited to Fehler lesen – a reading-performance and talk with Tabea Nixdorff and Monique Ulrich at diffract – centre for theoretical periphery on Sat, January 25, 2020 at 7.30 PM. ⁠

Tabea Nixdorff will be reading from her essay “Fehler lesen. Korrektur als Textproduktion,” followed by the reading-performance “Just as I meant shimmer literally, I mean grammar literally,” in which the textual stuttering of corrections and errata evolve as a soundscape.⁠ 



To celebrate the release of I Seem to Live. The New York Diaries, 1950-2011, Vol. 1, Anthology hosts a special reading from the diaries, with participants including poet and writer Vyt Bakaitis who worked with Mekas on his seminal book I Had Nowhere to Go; Florence and Ken Jacobs, filmmakers and colleagues for many years; filmmaker Chuck Smith and other special guests. The reading precedes one of the screenings of Anthology’s new restoration of Mekas’s first feature film, GUNS OF THE TREES (1961)
