Matinee Party: Poetry Factory
A season of enjoying the Sculpture Museum Park officially begins on June 16 with a Matinee Party where the audience will have the opportunity to experience the beautiful ambience, good music and poetry. A booklet has recently been published by our Poetry Factory, with the poetic material by authors, participants of a workshop “The Poet’s Place in the Workers’ Line”. The workshop was part of the recent exhibition “On Factories and Workers”.
The publication consists of poems and observations: intimate and social testimonies about the position of contemporary / former poets and workers. The material has been created as a result of discussions and experiments primarily with archival texts and poetry of workers. The editor of the publication is Maša Seničić, who designed and led the workshop, and the authors are Tamara Urošević, Stojan Simijonović, Anđela Milinković, Nevena Paunović, Dunja Ožegović, Isidora Petrović and Jelena Medan.
In line with the thinking about the production of poetry and about the poet being a worker, as well as about the worker-poet, a space for poetry will be set up at the event – literally a small poetry factory – where it will be possible to produce a poem in a paper format. Along with the workshop participants, the initiator of this production venture is Viktor Vejvoda, a member of the Kolxoz collective, a Czech artist interested in the ecology of consumption, value and improvisation. Technique of thermal printing will be used, which allows for a fast and collaborative production. All those interested are welcome to join and contribute at the open table by making an original poem or poetry from selected / archival texts.
This time, Ivan Zupanc will be in charge of the music. He will choose music inspired by work, workers’ rights and the position of workers in modern society.
