Aase Berg, Hackers, Black Ocean, 2017

"This is a threat.” That’s how Hackers, Swedish writer Aase Berg’s seventh book of poetry, begins. Hackers is a furious, feminist book about wanting to “hack” the patriarchal system—both in the physically violent sense and in the sense of computer hacking. But Berg also reveals the ‘hag’ behind the ‘hack,’ channeling the non-compliant rage of Glenn-Close-as-bunny-boiler from Fatal Attraction.  The world Berg “hags” back at is a world of sexist, capitalist, environmental, globalized violence. The fury of the hacker/hag/captive/revenger is constantly boiling up on the edges of Berg’s compounds and highways, threatening to infiltrate the center. In these spectacular battle scenes and hacked pastorals, where nature is besieged by the highways of progress and the animals don’t give a damn about the humans, the hag rises.

Robert Creeley, Là. Poèmes 1968 1975, Éditions Héros-Limite, 2010

Lieu et moyen d'expérience, le poème de Robert Creeley est travaillé, il effectue ses propres termes et conditions, fantômes d'intention et particules de pensée, les possibilités organiques et mécaniques de l'écriture comme ses interruptions, le contexte de la vie et les présupposés du genre. Résultat ? Une poétique du lieu et de la durée. Une dialectique spatio-temporelle des pronoms. Une autobiographie sérialisée des situations et relations. Une « histoire géographique » des formes et de leurs occurrences.

Robert Creeley, (1926–2005) est un poète américain. Auteur de plus d'une soixantaine de livres, il est considéré comme l'une des voix majeures de la poésie américaine des années 1950, notamment à travers le courant poétique de Black Moutain dont il est l'un des représentants. Il fut l'ami de nombreux poètes américains majeurs, tels que Charles Olson, Robert Duncan, Allen Ginsberg, John Wieners et Ed Dorn.

Emmett Williams, The Voyage, edition hansjörg mayer, 1975

One of Williams’ lesser known and more rare artists’ books in which he explores the mechanics of concrete poetry utilizing three-character words mathematically arranged within the constraints of a ten-by-ten grid. The content of the book is printed on the recto side only and can be read page by page, or in a more cinematic manner through flipping the pages. Either way, the writing as well as the execution of this book is a true voyage conceptually punctuated by the grid which gets smaller and smaller with each page ultimately fading away into the horizon. A handsomely designed and interactive book, much like Williams’ other work.

Bernard Blistène, Poésure et peintrie, Musées de Marseille, 1993

En contrepoint de l'exposition "Poésure et Peintrie" qu'organisent, dans le cadre de la Vieille Charité, les Musées de Marseille, un ouvrage fait le point sur une histoire jusqu'ici fragmentaire et mal connue. A l'aide des meilleurs chercheurs et théoriciens traitant chacun l'un des aspects du sujet, le livre explore les relations qui se sont construites, de la naissance de l'époque moderne jusqu'à nos jours, entre poésie et peinture. Il ne s'agit pas pour autant d'une histoire des poètes qui ont peint, mais plus subtilement des passages et des liens qui se sont établis autour d'une poésie qui s'est faite image pour devenir un véritable fait plastique. Du Coup de dés de Mallarmé aux calligrammes d'Apollinaire ou de Pierre Albert-Birot, des Mots en liberté futuristes aux jeux Dada et à l'optophonétisme de Raoul Hausmann ou la Ursonate de Kurt Schwitters, des poèmes-objets de Breton aux logogrammes de

Christian Dotremont, du zaoum d'Iliazd aux crirythmes de Dufrêne, de la poésie concrète à la poésie visuelle ou sonore, autant de " genres " qu'on a tenus à l'écart ou dans la marge des grandes novations esthétiques du siècle et auxquels cette exposition et l'ouvrage qui l'accompagne tentent de donner leur véritable place.

Christophe Rey, Claquettes et ornithologie, Éditions Héros-Limite, 2018

Télescopant des choses hétéroclites, nobles ou triviales, grossières ou délicates, complexes ou absurdes, les listes de Christophe Rey sont de véritables outils d’appréhension et de compréhension du monde.
Multipliant les angles inattendus, souvent drôles, ces listes sont aussi une forme d’écriture toujours ouverte, dont la fixation momentanée dans le livre appelle à l’imagination du lecteur.

L’originalité de l’ouvrage réside dans le fait que Christophe Rey a su ne pas faire de la liste un principe d’écriture figé, comme si la liste elle-même ne pouvait se satisfaire d’une seule forme. La lecture n’en est que plus réjouissante.

Guy de Cointet, A Few Drawings, cneai, 2005

Fac-similé du recueil de poésie graphique autoédité par Guy de Cointet en 1975, publié suite à l'exposition « Guy de Cointet / Allen Ruppersberg – A Few Drawings / Mixed Media » à la Galerie Air de Paris en 2006.

Guy de Cointet (né en 1934 à Paris, décédé en 1983 à Los Angeles) est considéré comme l'une des figures clé du mouvement de l'art conceptuel et de l'art de la performance qui ont émergé à Los Angeles dans les années 1970. Son influence sur la scène californienne actuelle est attestée par des artistes tels que Paul McCarthy, Mike Kelley, Allen Ruppersberg ou John Baldessari. La codification, le hiéroglyphe, la typographie représentent chez Cointet, dont l'œuvre est fortement marquée par un intérêt pour les procédés de langage et notamment les techniques d'écriture de Raymond Roussel, un processus d'élaboration du mot mis en image, et de la couleur mise en forme. Ses dessins et livres attestent de son goût du mystère, des langages codés et de la cryptographie. Proche du théâtre et de la poésie sonore et visuelle (ses narrations non linéaires, ses « objets scéniques », véritables « tableaux parlants », et ses croisements entre théâtre, cinéma et danse auront des échos jusque dans les recherches actuelles d'artistes comme Catherine Sullivan), Cointet est l'auteur d'une synthèse entre culture populaire, sources littéraires, surréalisme et art minimal.

Henri Chopin, Les Mirages des 27 / Visioni dei 27 Segni, Edizioni Morra, 1995

Henri Chopin (18 June 1922 – 3 January 2008) was a French avant-garde poet and musician: he is widely considered to be a pioneer in the recognition and distribution of sound-poetry. Besides poetry and music, his practice includes paining, graphic design, typography, independant publishing and filmmaking; Chopin's work is a barometer of the shifts in European media between the 1950s and the 1970s. 

In 1964 he created OU, one of the most notable reviews of the second half of the 20th century, and he ran it until 1974. OU's contributors included William S. Burroughs, Brion Gysin, Gil J Wolman, François Dufrêne, Bernard Heidsieck, John Furnival, Tom Phillips, and the Austrian sculptor, writer and Dada pioneer Raoul Hausmann. 

Chopin spent a lot of time in Naples from the beginning of the 1980s due to his collaborative projects with Peppe Morra, founder of Fondazione Morra, one of the most renowned spaces for contemporary art active within the city. Morra and Chopin worked closely together up until the final years of the French artist’s life. During this time they produced numerous publications, a large number of which were based on his stunning production of “typewriter poems”. Chopin found a new possibility for poetry both within sound and the written form; with a formal approach he constructed a new alphabetical narration that actually had no responsibility for communication.
His personal production — consisting of typewriter-poems and sound performances — is an inspired attempt to open the medium of poetry into a form described by Chopin as ‘a poetry of spaces’: demonstrating ‘the sensory superiority of sound as opposed to normal speech, and [...] free man from the straightjacket of words and letters and from his obedience to didactics.’

This book contains a text by Stelio Maria Martini.

(Colette Thomas) René, The Testament of the dead Daughter, Vauxhall&Company, 2014

Colette Thomas, one of Antonin Artaud’s “daughters of the heart” flashed briefly before an unsuspecting Parisian literary world after the war... then vanished. The book she published in 1954, under the pseudonym René, comprised letters to Antonin Artaud, accounts of her own early incarceration and suffering, along with tales wrenched from her tortured being. Despite some attention and knowledge of her book there has been no new French edition of Le Testament de la Fille morte.

Kathy Acker, McKenzie Wark, I'm Very Into You, Semiotext(e), 2015

I'm Very Into You, Correspondence 1995–1996 between Kathy Acker and McKenzie Wark

“Why am I telling you all this? Partly ‘cause the whole queerness/identity thing for me stretches through everything, absolutely everything. Slipping between straight/gay is child’s play compared to slipping between writer/teacher/influence-peddler whatever. I forget who I am. You reminded me of who I prefer to be.” [M.W.]

“It’s two in the morning. . . I know what you mean about slipping roles: I love it, going high low, power helpless even captive, male female, all over the place, space totally together and brain-sharp, if it wasn’t for play I’d be bored stiff and I think boredom is the emotion I find most unbearable. . . ” [KA]

After Kathy Acker met McKenzie Wark on a trip to Australia in 1995, they had a brief fling and immediately began a heated two-week email correspondence. Their emails shimmer with insight, gossip, sex, and cultural commentary. They write in a frenzy, several times a day; their emails cross somewhere over the International Date Line, and themselves become a site of analysis. What results is an index of how two brilliant and idiosyncratic writers might go about a courtship across 7,500 miles of airspace—by pulling in Alfred Hitchcock, stuffed animals, Georges Bataille, Elvis Presley, phenomenology, Marxism, The X-files, psychoanalysis, and the I Ching.
