A performative lyric reading by students from Theobald Baerwart secondary school.

The students spent three days with Daniel Dewar and Grégory Gicquel’s exhibition Mammalian Fantasies. Based on their encounters with the artworks and supported by the poet Claudia Gabler and art education team, they developed poems. They will present them at Kunsthalle Basel as the kickoff event of the 16. Internationales Lyrikfestival Basel.

A cooperation with 16. Internationales Lyrikfestival Basel, lyrix – Deutscher Bundeswettbewerb für junge Lyrik, and Theobald Baerwart secondary school.
