About the Body

14 Oct 2017
9 PM

In the poetry of Rickey Laurentiis and Morgan Parker, the body regularly demands the leading role. The meaning of the black body in contemporary American society is highlighted from different perspectives in their work: sexually, politically and sensitively.

An intimate programme about the black body. For example, about the appearance of the black body, Laurentiis writes: ‘There are eyes, glasses even, but still he can’t see / what the world sees seeing him.’ Morgan Parker: ‘When you open her up through the mouth hole, the dumb / cunt hole. You could stomp around in there. She won’t feel nothing.’

Host: Matthijs Ponte

This is the old program, on 3th of July 2024 the new program will be available!
