Poetry Marathon: Serpentine Galleryby Nicola Lees (Editor), Lucia Pietroiusti (Editor), Hans Ulrich Obrist (Introduction), Julia Peyton-Jones (Foreword by), Sean Landers (Contribution by)
Hans Ulrich Obrist’s 2009 Poetry Marathon was an ambitious two-day poetry event held in Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa’s summer pavilion at the Serpentine Gallery, with performances from leading poets, writers, artists, philosophers, scholars and musicians. Intended as a continuation of the overlap between twentieth-century poetry and art in Dada, Cubism, Surrealism, the New York Schools and Fluxus, this ambitious occasion is now commemorated in this 728-page volume. Poetry Marathon includes contributions from Sean Bonney, Tracey Emin, Brian Eno, James Fenton, Gilbert & George, John Giorno, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Kenneth Goldsmith, Eugen Gomringer, Richard Hell, Geoffrey Hill, Joan Jonas, August Kleinzahler, Nick Laird, Sean Landers, Jonas Mekas, Maria Mirabel, Eileen Myles, Philippe Parreno, Holly Pester, Jeremy Reed, Gerhard Rühm, Barry Schwabsky and Agnès Varda, among many others.
