On this night we will celebrate the release of the book KATHY ACKER 1971-1975 by Éditions Ismael. The first ever English edition of Kathy Acker’s unpublished writings in the early 1970s. A 656-page illustrated volume that will allow the reader to discover the wide variety of experimental practices developed by Kathy Acker.
At 8PM we will screen the 1974 film, Blue Tape, directed by Kathy Acker and conceptual artist Alan Sondheim. This film, similar to Vito Acconci’s videos, explores the relationships between intimacy, sexuality, pornography, identity, desire, memory and language.
From 10PM to 3AM, there will be concerts by musicians who accompanied this project by Éditions Ismael. In order of performance: Joana Guerra, TWOEMEMCOLCHEIASInverted, BA + NU É (Bernardo Álvares and Inês Vegetal) & António Caramelo (live act with projections + Dj set).
