Who wants to delve into the theme of this issue?
This quote from a letter of Antonin Artaud i found by coincidence during the making of a series of soundpoems titled ‘If one speaks the sacred language’ and i thought the sentence by Artaud was very suiting:
“I am adding another language to the spoken language, and I am trying to restore to the language of speech its old magic, its essential spellbinding power, for its mysterious possibilities have been forgotten.”

If one wants to contribute, the questions to be answered are:
– Have “the mysterious possibilities of language” – of speech or otherwise – indeed been forgotten? If so, what is the quality of this loss? How does this loss sound?
– Is the magic of language still present? In what way\from? Can it be transmitted? How is it transmitted?
– Can a new language be created? Can a sacred language be created?

One can answer these question with:
– A visual work made exclusively for this project ;
– And\or a text – of any type;
– And\or a soundpoem, constructed from the raw soundmaterial of this series of soundpoems.

So, it is possible to contributed with a maximum of 3 works, with the sole condition that different art forms are practised.
The 2 or 3 works may form a unity or may be independent works.
