The public will be invited to participate in the reading of thirteen poems, composed by artist Stephen Bram in 1999, drafted in a single session plus one later revision. Asked about the context of their creation, Bram wrote “At the time I made them I was living in Munich and didn’t know anyone very much. My German was rudimentary so there wasn’t much to read and I couldn’t follow television or radio. Even the internet was slow back then. I used to complain that I was suffering from narrative deprivation.”
3-ply is an independent publishing initiative that focuses on publication, writing, editing and translation as an extension of art practice.
