Daily performances & open poetry stage

The „office of dispensible words“ is an interactive art & social project about exchanging, sharing, optimizing and efficiency. What is necessary/ unnecessary? How effective can art be? Is art most efficient without a purpose, creating free and playful nonsense?
This question will be raised by a German artist, mostly speaking English in a bilingual Finnish-Swedish surrounding. Turku artists and poets are invited to exchange, discuss & perform in this context.

During office hours, you can hand in unwanted, unnecessary words. In return you will get a receipt and a surprise word you can fill with new exciting meaning. Dispensible words will be registered and recycled in script and sound. The results will be displayed and performed & discussed during performance hours.
