Office of dispensable words
Poetic-bureaucratic installation/performance by Dirk Huelstrunk (GER) in the yard of the Turku City Library during Olohuone 306,4qm Festival, Turku (Finland) from June 10-13.
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.
