Next Objectivists Meeting Thursday 5 January 2012

Welcome to 2012, Next Objectivists!

Join us this Thursday, January 5, for a workshop on Writing Machines. We will be reading RACTER's "The Policeman's Beard is Half-Constructed" (RACTER is a computer) and Christian Bök's analysis of the same, "The Piecemeal Bard is Deconstructed: Notes Towards a Potential Robopoetics." Some ideas to think about: What is signification in the absence of intent? What are the implications of a poetic machine? Are robopoetics the ultimate Romantic antithesis, eliminating the ego? Will robots ticker tape us into obsoletion? To explore further, we ourselves will become a Writing Machine.

Welcome to the future.

When: Thursday, January 5, 7:00 pm
Where: The Mess Hall at 6932 North Glenwood Ave., Chicago, Illinois in Rogers Park.
How: Free and open to the public!

The Next Objectivists is the world's only 100% autonomous poetry workshop dedicated to the study & reproduction of the OUTSIDEREAL. We meet approximately twice a month to read, write, eat & converse together about the poetics and politics associated with the Objectivist Poets and other writers who have refused the one person - one voice paradigm of professionalized poetry production.
