dec. 4, 2013 - may 25, 2014 - a human document: selections from the sackner archive of concrete and visual poetry

pérez art museum miami (PAMM) presents an extensive selection of works from the miami-based collection of ruth and marvin sackner.
founded in 1979, this “archive of archives” initially focused on concrete and visual poetry—including rare manuscripts and published works by international luminaries such as augusto and haroldo de campos, oyvind fahlström and eugen gomringer. (…)
the exhibition begins with a rare, 1897 publication of “un coup de des” (a throw of the dice), by stéphane mallarmé, which is considered one of the first true examples of concrete poetry, and it includes hundreds of objects spanning more than a century of creative expression.

»anachronism« typewriter-poems by anatol knotek

unique, handmade chapbook, 16 poems, DIN A6, with sewn bindings;

usually a book is just a copy - but not this one. every poem is individually written with my typewriter, so each single page is unique. out of about 50 poems i chose 16 for each book, therefore also the contents varies.
