Reuterswärd’s poetry

A poetry reading and introduction

14.9 2019

Stockholm

Welcome to a reading of Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd’s poetry with his daughter, the artist Olivia Reuterswärd. The reading is followed by an introduction to the exhibition “Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd – Alias: CFR” by the curator Helena Åberg.

On the first day of the exhibition, Reuterswärd’s daughter, the artist Olivia Reuterswärd, will read from “Corrupt Federal Reserve” (2010) and “Prix Nobel” (1966) by Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd. Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd published several volumes of poetry. He made his debut as a poet at the age of 16, under the pseudonym of Charlie.

Inspired by Dada, Marcel Duchamp and John Cage, Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd was a pioneer of concrete poetry in Sweden. As a member of the Fluxus movement, he dissolved the boundary between art and poetry. “Prix Nobel” from 1966 consists only of punctuation, where the words are implicit and the signs form pictures.

The reading is followed by an introduction to the exhibition “Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd – Alias: CFR” by the curator Helena Åberg.
