Artist, writer and poet Karl Larsson (Sweden) presents a series of readings in English, Swedish and German from his publications  Form/Force and Parrot. 
 
Form/Force compiles a series of essayistic studies on various cultural, contemporary historical, and political events
, including the  destruction of the gigantic Buddhas in Bamiyan by the Taliban, secret writings from the 'German Autumn' period, and statements by singer Ian Curtis of the band Joy Division. The publication is formulated as poetry, with entries that alternate in languages, and which operate in the manner of a stream of consciousness, with Larsson reproducing perceptions, thoughts, and reflections of the events and subjects. The publication Parrot expresses Larsson's own continuing artistic dialogue with, and analysis of, the writing and work of Marcel Broodthaers. His strategy of inhabiting the animist role of the parrot, reflects Larsson's conception of the entity of the book as a form that can harbour, generate, and repeat poetic statements - echoing and maintaining the languages, forms and  concepts of all that had existed before it. 
 
A core element of Larssons practice is concerned with ongoing conversations between poetry and sculpture, between form and storytelling. Of central interest to him also is the concept of the 'paratext' which he comprehends both in the non-narrative minutiae
of the publication (the publishers information, the page numbers), and in the anecdote that arises when the initial purpose of a  narrative, action or event has gone awry.
