Events | Regener meets Lentz

Berlin | October 24, 2019 | 7:30 PM

The poets Jerry Quickley and Michael Lentz at Villa Aurora in 2001

TEXT+KRITIK at Haus für Poesie

Reading & Talk with Villa Fellow Michael Lentz and Sven Regener, musician and author. Moderated by Stefan Greif, and Jan Wilm, editors of Text+Kritik

At first glance, they could hardly be more different: Sven Regener and Michael Lentz. This year, two TEXT + CRITIK editions will be published on the two artist personalities, who as authors and musicians are performers of mercy. The one a casual antipatheticist, who praises the incident in a language that does not use literature grease. He sings songs about lazy dreams and a shifting time, "Coffee and Karin, Birgit and Beer". The scenes of his songs are the edges of the city, multi-purpose pool and a ditch behind Huchting. The other is an artist to whom the historical avant-gardes have been flesh-and-blood. He writes poems in a "plug-in language", "glossolall" and interspersed with archaisms and neologisms. In them, he explores the "fever of a mosquito", and practices in Etudes over in the coffee light dipped sugar spoon.
