Welcoming the two New York poets Matvei Yankelevich and Robert Fitterman to Anti on thursday, for a concentrated hour of readings and, with a little help from our audience, a short q & a about works and experiences in publishing.
Free for all. Readings begin at quarter past.

He has collaborated with several visual artists, including: Serkan Ozkaya, Nayland Blake, Sabine Herrmann, Natalie Czech, Tim Davis, Klaus Killisch. His writing has been described as “a poetry often composed of found texts that emphasize the personal relationship to social themes with broad critiques of cultural institutions and constructs such as chat rooms, consumer reviews, shopping malls, museums, etc.” He is the founding member of the artists-poets collective, Collective Task http://collectivetask.magnetberg.de/ . He lives in New York City and teaches writing at New York University.
