Presentation of the writers‘ workshop “Flee, you fools”

For three days, secondary-school students from Theobald Baerwart engage with the exhibition of the French sculptor Camille Blatrix. Using traditional techniques, Blatrix hand-creates elegant objects resembling machines from an unknown future—but these are strange machines, reluctant to reveal their function. Supported by the poet and literary mediator Alisha Stöcklin, the students express their encounters with the artworks in words and poems and present them as a performative reading in the exhibition galleries.

In cooperation with the 17th International Poetry Festival Basel, the secondary school Theobald Baerwart and Lyrix – Deutscher Bundeswettbewerb für junge Lyrik.
