Anguish Language
Writing and Crisis

Launch of the anthology Anguish Language: Writing and Crisis, edited by John Cunningham, Anthony Iles, Mira Mattar and Marina Vishmidt. On the occasion of the presentation the editors will be joined by contributors Sean Bonney, Karolin Meunier & Mattin.

Anguish Language approaches language as a core aspect of the present social crisis. The project engages in solidarity with forms of self-publishing, poetry, criticism, experimental writing and declamation that have arisen in the wake of the 2007-8 financial crisis, considering language among and through the social struggles responding to its consequences.

The editors will also present the book on Monday, 23 November, 9 pm at b_books, Lübbener Str. 14, Berlin
