ERASE is a digital festival and conference on the poetics and politics of erasure. Throughout five days, during September 20-24, 2021, this hybrid event will take place online and on-site. It blends the festival and conference format to showcase commissioned video presentations of creative works, and to contribute to a critical debate on the theme of erasure. ERASE invites international guests to reflect on how the poetic, literary, and artistic practices of erasure relate to wider discussion on aesthetics, technology, and politics.

 

ERASE brings together poets, artists, and critics from Angola, Chile, China, Germany, Hong Kong, Portugal, Taiwan, and the United States. The participants include Florian Cramer, Tammy Lai-Ming Ho, Daniel C. Howe, Hung Hung, Raquel Lima, Bruno Ministro, Winnie Soon, Carlos Soto-Román, and Juliana Spahr.

 

ERASE is curated by Álvaro Seiça and designed by Manufactura Independente.
