Poets and writers, six in total, have been invited to inspire you with the story and photographs of Francesca Woodman through their speeches.
Literary curator Justin Samgar collected a palet of poets, writers and spoken word artists to provide the evening with a diversity of coloured words. Are you interested in what these young, talented word artists have to say? In how they listened and looked at the work of Woodman? Join in on the evening of February 5, starting at 7 PM. Participating are: Tieka Masfar, René Oskam, Smita James, Kira Wuck, Ike Krijnen and Amber-Helena Reisig.
Images speak more than words, but which words would that be? In every edition of #houdjemonddichter performance art, a selection of spoken word artists writes about pieces of art or an exhibition. These poems and stories will be presented on the spot by the artists themselves.

ABOUT FRANCESCA WOODMAN. ON BEING AN ANGEL
The most significant subject in American photographer Francesca Woodman’s (1951-1981) work was Francesca Woodman herself. She used photography as an extremely personal means of expression, as if wearing her skin inside out, making herself the only subject of her work. Her photographs were shown in a number of major international exhibitions and they have inspired artists all over the world
Spoken word at Woodman is a co-production of PoetryPusher and Foam.
