People who have saved this event:



Concrete poet, arts organiser, publisher and printmaker Bob Cobbing (1920-2002) is best known for his performed works in which language is anarchically stretched and dismantled through the deployment of shouts, groans and hisses, interspersed between more recognisable tracts of spoken word. He made innumerable publications and prints, visual scores that blur the distinction between decipherable text and abstract imagery. Bill Jubobe, an excerpt from a line written by Cobbing's friend and collaborator François Dufrene (Bob jubile et, bien sur, à Â  la langue, Bill jubobe"), highlights the interrelation between Cobbing's live performance and his experiments on paper.
