Language in all senses: word games by international artists will be on display in the rooms of the Akademie der Künste. All works invite members of the public to become actively involved, either by looking and participating “mentally” or with the whole body. You can dance verse, feel ideas or recognise them in drops of water, read texts through movement, write words of longing, control letters with your voice, start up text machines or wander through a satellite-guided audio poem in the neighbouring Tiergarten.
In co-operation with the Brückner-Kühner Foundation, Kassel.
