Speaking East: Lettrisme Now and Then

June 22, 2016
3:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Columbia Global Centers | Paris, 4 rue de Chevreuse, 75006

The aim of this workshop is to bring together academics, writers and lettristes in order to explore the living legacy of lettrisme, the significance of the origins of lettrisme in the experience of the Romanian Holocaust and the movement of ideas from the Eastern margins of Europe to avant-garde movements which are considered to be part of ‘Western’ modernity.
