Kakania on the Austrian Cultural Forum

Kakania

Kakania http://www.acflondon.org/literature-and-books/kakania/

Tuesday 25 November 2014, 7.00pm | Rich Mix
Kakania celebrates the culture of Habsburg Vienna a century ago, with commissions of contemporary artists from 21st century London.
With an array of contemporary artists working in poetry, visual art, sound & conceptual art, Kakania aims to not just to evoke the Habsburg era, but to envelope it, to transpose it, to avoid nostalgia and in its stead bring the intensity and innovation that marked the last days of the Habsburg era. Curated by SJ Fowler and supported by the ACF London, this is the first in a series of four events. Find out more at kakania.co.uk 
Featuring brand new commissions from:
Sharon Gal on Anton Webern
Marcus Slease on Max Kurzweil
Caroline Bergvall on Gustav Klimt
Ariadne Radi Cor & Diane Silverthorne on Alma Mahler
Dylan Nyoukis on Raoul Hausmann
Stephen Emmerson on Rainer Maria Rilke
Maja Jantar on Lou Andreas-Salome

updates on the Enemies project website : www.weareenemies.com

Recently added is a revamped About section detailing future plans and past happenings, an updated 2014 schedule with event information and videos and the beginnings of the 2015 schedule.
http://weareenemies.com/about.html 
http://weareenemies.com/events_14.html 
- an example from the about below

The future
As the Enemies project moves into 2015 there are five key points of its future program:

Innovative event curation: trying to genuinely break new ground in the form and structure of events and exhibitions and programmes between poets and artists. Events include the Kiddy Kamarade, a family poetry day including a creche and children’s pedagogical poetry activities, a collaborative residency with an award winning and innovative landscape architecture form to explore how language can shape the very literal but endlessly complex physical shaping of urban environments and new forms of collaborative poetry readings with established partners like the Hay-on-Wye festival.

Innovative collaborative connections between mediums: marrying poetry with sculpture, with England’s folk music tradition, with sound art and avant garde music, with film and film language, with animation. The new year of Enemies seeks new ground to break across artforms.

a continued increase in our International outlook: an emphasis on bringing other cultures and languages to collaborate in England, and to explore the possibilities of translation as a practise, and what this means to language but also to different artforms, to whom the word is not so familiar and provides unique challenges. Wales, Austria, Norway, Germany, Finland, Mexico and many others are on the slate.

Radical translation: a long term partnership with the Translation Games project, curated by Ricarda Vidal, following on from back to back appearances at the British Library's International Translation Day, situates Enemies at the forefront of experimental translation practise, and events and anthologies will further this pursuit in 2015.

Co-curating collaboration: setting up events that are built on a collaborative partnership in the curating of those events, and exploring how that mediation of exchange in the actual programming of artistic exchange affects, and enriches that practise. The Enemies website will evidence and discuss this process with a series of co-curators for the many projects lined up throughout the year, through video interviews and blogposts and interviews.

Collectives: exploring the notion of collective collaboration and how it differs from binary collaboration, and how it inherently bleeds across mediums in an organic and social manner. Through three recently established and contrasting collectives, involving some of most exciting names in contemporary art writing, performance art, poetry, visual art and electronic literature, the Enemies project will explore whether the Collective is a mode of collaboration still relevant to the 21st century.

Hay Xalapa lineup announced

Trepidation commended for the Forward Prize 2014

I'm pleased to say my poem Trepidation, which featured in my latest collection, the Rottweiler's Guide to the Dog Owner, has been highly commended by the Forward Prize. It means it'll feature in the anthology the prize puts out to celebrate it's awards later in the year. I wrote the poem as a set of ten on two days in Berlin for a performance with Alessandro Eramo, sat with WS Graham in a bedsit in Wedding, in a snowing February in 2013. I've never once thought back on that poem as being in anyway exceptional, for it to be singled out is pleasing as it surprises me to reread it and see what people might see when viewing it in isolation. A random thing, but good to have recognition for the thing within the thing. http://www.eyewearpublishing.com/products-page/books/s-j-fowler/
