DW does Paris.
This collection approaches the theme of interacting/interactions with language(s) that, across the contributors who are French speakers, English speakers, English/French speakers, has developed in myriad diverging ways. Impossible translation, engine translation, dictionary work, 'resistant reading'; text as physical medium. Also artistic discourse on language itself, what it's for, what it does; how it forms us, how it perhaps constrains us. As too interactions with it in life and everyday settings, how it might get in the way, or fall apart, help or hinder.
With, among the contributors, writers of prose, essay, poetry alongside conceptual artists, as too members of the Collège de ‘Pataphysique and the Oulipo/Outranspo, DW Paris is a diverse showcase of Paris-centred experimental and innovative literature in 2019.
