I was first invited to present a paper and screening at VideoBardo in 2012, and when Lucy and I first formed Liberated Words it was important to me to establish a special link with them. Since then I have been trying to get them to to the UK to talk about video poetry in Argentina and Latin America. I now have great pleasure in announcing that Marisol Bellusci (and via Skype director Javier Robledo) from VideoBardo will be in discussion with myself, in Bristol, on the 12th of February, 6–7.30. The event is hosted by Bristol Poetry Institute and has kindly been made possible by Dr Rebecca Kosick, lecturer in the School of Modern Languages at Bristol University. We are also indebted to the patient and wonderful videopoet Lucia Sellars, who has held the event together with her excellent translation of sometimes complex themes.
This is a UNIQUE experience, so please come along – FREE AND OPEN TO ALL. Artists who will be screened: Paula Herrera Vivas / Argentina; Mariana Maia da Silva / Brazil; María Papi / Argentina; Loayza Claudia Peru / Argentina; Melissa Haller / Argentina; Marisol Bellusci & Luis Saray / Argentina-Colombia; Nicolás M. Pintos / Argentina; Dan Boord and Luis Valdovino / USA- Argentina; Pagan Maximum / Argentina; Javier Robledo / Argentina.
6.00 pm, 12 February 2020 / Old Council Chamber Room / 1.11 Wills Memorial Building, Bristol University, Queens Rd, Clifton, Bristol BS8 1RJ.
