Program: Zürich

Poets-in-residence provided an ongoing series of lectures, screenings, discussions, and poetry readings. In addition to live events, these poets were the editors of the 1000 Books by 1000 Poets series for the duration of the exhibition in Zürich. At any given time, poets were producing posters, editing books, writing poetry or conversing with visitors on issues in contemporary poetics. On the hour before closing each day, an international poetry reading was convened via Skype.
