gustav sjöberg: “la fiorente materia del tutto. sulla natura della poesia” (neri pozza, 2022)

https://neripozza.it/libri/la-fiorente-materia-del-tutto

«Un altro modo di comprendere la materia sarebbe, approssimativamente, di trattarla come una produzione di infinite, innumerevoli forme entro un incessante movimento di decomposizione e composizione, dissoluzione e ricombinazione. Concepita in questo modo la materia non sarebbe più un substrato passivo su cui si debba intervenire con un lavoro formale, bensì, al contrario, una molteplicità di forme che genera se stessa e con cui combacerebbe».

*

Gustav Sjöberg, poeta, scrittore e traduttore, vive a Stoccolma. Traduce da diverse lingue, tra cui l’italiano, il latino e il tedesco. Ha tradotto dal latino il De vulgari eloquentia di Dante e dall’italiano opere di Andrea Zanzotto, Giacomo Leopardi, Giorgio Agamben, Giordano Bruno, Gianni Carchia. Ha curato molti numeri della rivista svedese “OEI”, tra cui il n. 67/68 del 2015, monografico sulle scritture di ricerca italiane: Scrittura non assertiva!. Due sue raccolte di testi sperimentali, uscite per le edizioni OEI, sono eftre (2013) e apud (2017). Il volume di teoria letteraria ora pubblicato da Neri Pozza è stato scritto in tedesco e pubblicato a Berlino nel 2020 da Matthes & Seitz con il titolo zu der blühenden allmaterie.

Dalla nota editoriale di Monica Ferrando:

Chi ha detto che la materia è incapace di creare da sé la forma (o le forme)? D’accordo, è stato Aristotele, lo sappiamo. Ma cosa accadrebbe invece se, forzando il maestro di coloro che sanno, troncassimo il legame tra forma e arte perché «mediante un concetto di forma radicalmente altro diventerà possibile una distruzione dell’arte – e, in particolare della poesia – concepita come ambito autonomo, come sfera distinta dalla non-arte, dalla non-poesia oppure come sublime riflessione sull’esistenza. Non sarà che qui si compie una risoluzione dell’arte nella natura?» Non è alla scienza o alla negromanzia tecnologica faustiana che l’autore affida tale compito, ma alla poesia stessa […]

costa + baruchello = le vocali (1979)

Corrado Costa, Baruchello! Facciamo, una buona volta, il catalogo delle vocali

Con sei disegni di Gianfranco Baruchello (Exit Edizioni, Ravenna 1979)

http://www.archiviomauriziospatola.com/prod/pdf_archivio/A00257.pdf

“Notizia curiosa: il poemetto di Costa sulle vocali è stato recentemente tradotto in svedese e pubblicato nell’antologia OEI, scrittura non assertiva! dedicata alla nuova poesia italiana a cura di Gustav Sjöberg (Stockholm 2015), in cui compare anche il libro di Gianfranco Baruchello Come ho dipinto certi miei quadri (Edizioni Geiger, 1975). Alla redazione di questa antologia sono felice di aver dato un piccolo contributo anch’io. La traduzione in svedese dei versi di Costa è riportata al termine del documento, insieme con le biografie e le foto dei due autori di questo libro” (Maurizio Spatola)

lytle shaw, jonas (j) magnusson & cecilia grönberg on fieldworks, locality, and alternative histories

Wednesday 17/11 Gothenburg

Lytle Shaw, Jonas (J) Magnusson & Cecilia Grönberg on fieldworks, locality, and alternative histories

New York based writer Lytle Shaw will talk about his recent book New Grounds for Dutch Landscape (OEI editör, 2021), where he uses an experimental, site-specific method to demonstrate how 17th century Dutch painters did not so much represent the newly made landscape of Holland as reenact, through the materials and techniques used in their paintings, its reclamation and the ongoing threats to its stability: from flooding to erosion.

Jonas (J) Magnusson & Cecilia Grönberg will discuss entanglements of fieldwork, editing, and local materialities, based on their work ”reading | locality (mountains, prints) [strata from an expanded book; billingen, kinnekulle (2001-2021)]” currently on display at Göteborg Konsthall as part of Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art.

The evening is moderated by Lisa Rosendahl, Curator of Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art 2021 and Associate Professor of Exhibition Studies at The Academy of Fine Art in Oslo.

“oei”, april 10 and 11: moving mountains & mounting transitions 

OEI_moving_mountainsMoving mountains & mounting transitions

2 days on “editorial thinking” with OEI at Index – The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation

This event will be live-streamed via Index’ Twitch channel: www.twitch.tv/indexfoundation

Saturday April 10 and Sunday April 11, 14:00-17:00

On the occasion of the exhibition Editorial Thinking at Index, OEI magazine organizes a two-day event, inviting artists, editors, publishers, writers, and scholars to reflect on the notion of “editorial thinking” in relation to their different practices. Each day will comprise two sessions and will be live streamed via Twitch. The talks take in conversations around editing and publishing as artistic and literary practices, as well as focusing on new and latest publications by OEI.
Guests include Alice Centamore, Pierre Paulin, Michalis Pichler, Nils Olsson, Sezgin Boynik, Lytle Shaw, Axel Andersson.

Saturday 10 April, 14:00-17:00
Addressing “(im)proper places for other books”, Michalis Pichler will talk about historical and recent initiatives of artists who have tried to break out of the process of cultural confinement of their books. This talk will be followed by a short lecture by Nils Olsson on editorial practices taking its cue from Walter Benjamin’s “The author as producer”. Joining us from Paris, Pierre Paulin and Alice Centamore will focus on editing and publishing through the lenses of art, poetry, archives, and curating.

Sunday 11 April, 14:00-17:00
After an introduction to some of the complexities between fieldwork and editing by Jonas (J) Magnusson & Cecilia Grönberg, Lytle Shaw will talk about his new book New Grounds for Dutch Landscape (OEI editör), where he uses an experimental, site-specific method to demonstrate how 17th century painters Jan van Goyen, Jacob van Ruisdael, and Meindert Hobbema did not so much represent the newly made landscape of Holland as re-enact its reclamation and ongoing threats to its stability.
Axel Andersson presents his new book Negative Geology – A Cultural and Technical History of Early European Mountaineering (OEI editör), on mountaineering before Romanticism, which traces the interconnected developments in literature, visual arts, philosophy and technology contributing to the continent’s intense interest in mountains. Sezgin Boynik, the guest editor of the latest issue of OEI, #90–91: “Sickle of Syntax & Hammer of Tautology. Concrete and Visual Poetry in Yugoslavia, 1968–1983”, tackles the question of how to edit avantgarde archives while introducing this new OEI issue.

The most recent issue of Stockholm based OEI magazine takes its starting point in Ernesto de Sousa’s explosive activities as filmmaker, photographer, curator, critic, writer, folk art researcher, multimedia artist etc. in the Portuguese 1960s onwards. Being active in almost everything that belongs to the domain of the arts in the broadest sense of the word, Ernesto de Sousa (1921-1988) adopted the term “aesthetic operator” to be used instead of the word “artist” – “for the simple reason that ‘artist’ designates a kind of sociological position and not a philosophical attitude towards the world” (José Miranda Justo).

As a “source of enthusiasm, dynamism and motivation” (Isabel Alves), Ernesto de Sousa created new connections between all sorts of disciplines, forms, materials and social contexts. In its 640 page long textual and visual montage, including a series of new essays and translations of key essays, as well as a lot of archival material, OEI #80-81 also looks at the practices of a number of De Sousa’s fellow “aesthetic operators” (Alberto Carneiro, Túlia Saldanha, Álvaro Lapa, Fernando Calhau, Lourdes Castro, Ana Vieira, Ana Hatherly, E.M. de Melo e Castro, António Barros…). At the same time, OEI #80-81 encompasses texts on magazines such as Poesia Experimental, Operação, Nova, A Urtiga, and Alternativa; and works by artists from younger generations such as Isabel Carvalho, Paulo Mendes and Mariana Silva.

This special issue of OEI magazine also accompanied the exhibition Supergood – Dialogues with Ernesto de Sousa at MAAT (2018), curated by Hugo Canoilas.

*

Ernesto de Sousa (Lisbon, 1921–1988) was one of the most complex and active figures of his time, a prolific multidisciplinary artist and an avid producer of synergies between generations of artists from both the first and the second half of the 20th century. Defending an experimental and free artistic expression, he dedicated himself to the study, promotion and practice of the arts, as well as to curatorship, critique and essay writing, photography, cinema and theater. During the 1960s he connected to the Fluxus movement and with the European neo-avant-garde, and became friends with Robert Filliou and Wolf Vostell. This contact was significant to his vision of art as an experimental and participatory “open work”, of which the theatrical exercise Nós Não Estamos Algures (1969), the expanded film Almada, Um Nome de Guerra (1969-1972) and the mixed media Luíz Vaz 73 (with music by composer Jorge Peixinho) are some examples. During this decade and up until the 1980s, he organized courses, conferences and exhibitions on experimental film, video art, performance and happening, while promoting connections between the international neo-avant-garde and the Portuguese context. The exhibition “Alternativa Zero” (Galeria Nacional de Arte Moderna, Lisbon, 1977) synthesized this project of creating a Portuguese avant-garde in aesthetic and ideological dialogue with its international counterparts.

march 9th, stockholm, two new books published by oei: by g. a. tiberghien and g. agamben

Friday 9 March, 2018, h. 18:30
Investigative books / the book as investigation

OEI @ Moderna Museet (Stockholm)

Release of two new books in the series OEI undersökningar: Anteckningar om kojan, naturen och några andra saker (Notes sur la nature, la cabane et quelques autres choses), by the philosopher and writer Gilles A. Tiberghien, and Barndom och historia (Infancy and History: The Destruction of Experience), by the philosopher Giorgio Agamben.

Gilles A. Tiberghien (Paris) lectures on huts as privileged places for encounters between art and nature – a kind of laboratory for theoretical and practical experimentation. If houses are where we are rooted, huts are transitional spaces, temporary bricolages where we can withdraw from the world while being in it. Huts are like doors into nature, open places for thinking, writing and creating art. There are plenty of examples, from Descartes’ room with a stove, and Thoreau’s small house by Walden Pond, to Wittgenstein’s cabin in Norway, or Kawamata’s tree huts in France, Germany, China and the USA.

The poet and translator Gustav Sjöberg presents his Swedish translation of Agamben’s Infancy and History.
