Oswald Egger: szillassi dunce letzte. (Triumph der Farben, Lilienfeld 2018)

Welcoming remarks | Dr. Florian Höllerer

Introduction to the exhibition | Heike Catherina Mertens

Performative Reading | Oswald Egger

Based on geometric studies and color systems developed by mathematicians Karl Merz, Ákos Császár, and Lajos Szilassi, Oswald Egger unfolds a history of ideas on the projective in poetry. We are honored to present this literary kaleidoscope, in which Egger sends language, color, geometry on a playful voyage of discovery, for the first time in an exhibition and performative reading.

This event concludes the 2019 Stefan George Society conference »Poetics of the Reading«.

A cooperation with Literarisches Colloquium Berlin

The exhibition will be on display until February 7, 2020 and can be visited at the LCB before and after evening events or by appointment (email: / Tel. 030-8169960).
