The New Now - Johan Sonnenschein

15 December at Bradwolff Projects

Finissage and Talk: The New Now by Johan Sonnenschein

Johan Sonnenschein (NL]) teaches Dutch Language and Literature at the University of Liège, where he is currently working on a history of the new in the poetry of The Netherlands. Sonnenschein will share some of the findings in his search of the new – in poetry, philosophy & theory. The case in focus will be the Dutch socialist poet Herman Gorter (1864-1927), who dedicated his life and works to the new, doing so in the heyday of the new: the late 19th early 20th century. His ‘neophile’ poetry raises this question: what about the new today, well into the 21st century? Is it still amongst us? To see the ‘new now’ more clearly, we will first need to find out where it comes from.
