VIDEOBARDO www.videobardo.com in Buenos Aires is celebrating its 25th anniversary! Live from the 25–28 November at the CENTRO CULTURAL SAN MARTÍN – SALA 1 (Sarmiento y Paraná ) 5–11 pm, it is now online at the Video Bardo YouTube channel. I was honoured to be interviewed by festival director Javier Robledo who asked some really interesting questions interview with Javier and this is followed by the interview by Charles Olsen with Spanish and Portuguese video poets from the book. These have had a fantastic number of hits to date, as have other videos on the site, so thank you everyone.
There were numerous screenings and invited curations to see, and I wish I could have been there myself. I went in 2012 and gave a talk, so I know how special the festival can be. If you take a look at their website you can travel back to the beginning of this century! and see the extraordinary work they have been across all forms of poetry. They are truly an innovative festival.
SO excited to be part of it.
