Artistic Readings
Why poetry is a perennial von Ruth Buchanan

Why poetry is a perennial, duration 10 min, one-to-one readings in the Transition Exhibition at Kunsthaus Dahlem by Ruth Buchanan (EN).

Ruth Buchanan’s artistic work addresses the dynamic relationship between body, power, language and architecture. Buchanan conducts herreadings face to face with visitors, creating an intimate encounter with poetry. They are based on an ongoing engagement with the poet J.C. Sturm (1927–2009), one of the first female Māori writers to have her work published. Sturm addressed the paradoxical situation faced by women in society today: while they have more autonomy, their status is perpetually unstable. Buchanan’s feminist gestures offer approaches to challenge these entrenched structures and imbalances exposed in exhibitions.
