It has been thirty years that I’ve been interested in experimental poetries. What to do with this collection accumulated as time has worn on, reviews in which I’ve been published or publications that I’ve replaced for my own editions ? Un DIA©®.

Description: 

Iteration from March 6, 2003 at Ceci n’est pas une galerie (ex “Rearrangement of Garage 103”)

It takes place in several stages:
- Taking all the booklets, journals, and fanzines out from the depths of the library,

- Putting up each of the publications on a stick like the newspapers in brasseries

- Editing a postcard “Mouna Aguigui PrOphETE,”

- Forwarding to each of the network partners a postcard announcing the project and suggesting that they help complète the collection and/or participate at DIA©®,

- Producing a network of overhead cables, image of the www, and hanging the publications there by a hook,

- During the visit of amateurs each publication can be consulted and replaced on the cable network (thus the publications change ‘neighbors’ as there are more consultations)

- Welcoming participants at the inauguration

- Preparing and giving a concert of performances (in regards to what I see as deserving mention: giving a reading of texts sent, broadcasting the Cds and videos sent, interpreting the work of others, such as “this is a performance…” by Charles Dreyfus and “aviator aviation” by Adriano Spatola)

- creating and conserving documentation of the event (see below).

Iteration from July 1, 2003 in l’Espace Magnan:

It’s a long evening that requires mastery of the flux : Olivier Garcin as Monsieur Loyal after having given his performance « I am art history !».

The readings, actions, and performances roll late into the night, with, and in, disorder : Akénaton, Jean Claude Babois, Eléonore Bak, Ben, Carla Bertola, Sophie Braganti, Patricia Dao, Nicola Frangione, Gerwulf (Michel Giroud), Patrick Lanneau, Bruno Mendonça, Jean Monod, Katy Rémy, Ali Therani, Marcin Sobieszcianski, Alberto Vitacchio (Julien Blaine and Benoist Magnat excused absences !!!)

Iteration from April 2004 in l’Espace Magnan:
