Performance Christopher Knowles - Emily likes the tv

A cooperation with the Fridericianum, Kassel

In 1973 Christopher Knowles recorded a long poem about his sister that repeated variations on a single line—“Emily likes the TV, because she watches the TV, because she likes it”. The audiotape with this poem marked the beginning of the collaboration between Knowles and avant-garde theatre director Robert Wilson. Wilson transcribed the text, and it was visually stunning: “If one looked at the piece of paper from far away, you could see the use of language was mathematical,” said Wilson. “There were patterns vertically, horizontally, diagonally.” At the Fridericianum, Christopher Knowles will perform 'Emily likes the TV' live.

Heads up! The event will take place at the Fridericianum (Friedrichsplatz 18, 34117 Kassel).

Reading club: Heimat

From November 2020, Kunstverein Langenhagen will be temporarily transformed into a ‘heimatmuseum’. This exhibition project presents the problems and possibilities, the nostalgia, the pain and the longing that surround the ‘heimat’ concept. In preparation for this exhibition, in 2020 the bi-monthly reading club is all about 'heimat’.
