Coolness of poetry

It is permissible to throw in the arms of poetry page boutants.


[poem] This week I will plunge into poetry collections. I have a whole heap, and they come from different cities and different eras, and many I have got cheap, cheap, cheap on the hall, and they lie in a heap at home with me. And I throw myself at them and they receive me and get hold of what is not there today. It is so that when you have read too many documents and too many related issues you need it to dissolve, flutter, that words do not link in the same way anymore, and you do not need to understand everything but that the way words are put together seems more than words in themselves, you do not realize that I do not fully understand how to say this, right?

Top of the pile: Debutantane. Musicians Karl Seglem say poetry page / collection of words STILLA IS A AKER fifty poems and several songs. I am not sure if I like everything, but I like something, I like this: «Jotunheimen / a gigantic clock flock energy / jotnane where the jotnane is / Coltrane / wholeheartedly / out of madness / with his own journey / hundred years of his heartbeat / on conscience / the pinnacle stretches / sings / peaks stretches / it pits / it pours all the way here ».

Maybe because I like Jotunheimen, and maybe because I long for the west I like this: "the reflex dangling / with the November evening / the body over rima oil gravel / moon / with its whole / sun half / in the sea / west most west / west most."

Another poetry debutant, Thomas Marco Blatt, is also good to land with, he has a completely different language in This is how I want to measure the world, and I think I like it better, without me. . .

ASIA: "We are the ones who are far away, while they are in the center"

TECHNOLOGY: According to Kevin Kelly, technology writer, photographer and publicist, the best thing you can do sometimes is slow down technology.

Two girls with clasped hands stare expressionlessly at the ground

AFGHANISTAN: Sangin – during twenty years of war, this area has been the bloodiest battlefield. It is reminiscent of Roman ruins. In 2001, one in three Afghans was starving – now one in two is starving.

Dialogue between sculpture and photography

DISPLAY: Peter Lindbergh's photographs of Alberto Giacometti's small, secret sculptures – put together in an exhibition: Showing intimacy is a challenge. You come as a visitor, an intruder…

The danger of modified nature

ECOLOGY:With technological measures in all directions, researchers are faced with sky-high challenges. One of them is human ignorance linked to indifference.

To modernize an entire continent

PROFESSIONAL LITERATURE: The tendency of Latin American writers to focus on a better future is part of the region's renewed self-awareness – and modernization with free abortion and new constitutions.

The effort in ORIENTERING contributed to a turning point in the Norwegian labor movement

A gigantic loss project

Hitler's favorite director Leni Riefenstahl

FALSE OF HISTORY? Nina Gladitz challenges the notion that Leni Riefenstahl was an ingenious artist with poor political views. Her documentary about the filmmaker has been hidden in the German WDR archive since 1982. The reactions to Gladitz's book also show how difficult it is to seek truth and give the weakest in society a voice.

Challenging climate sobriety

ECOLOGY: We need such voices as Holly Jean Buck, who criticizes wishful thinking – precisely to help bring forward a hopeful, serious and long-lasting climate fight, beyond all easy optimism.

The comprehensive self-insulation

COVID19: SARS in 2003, bird flu in 2005, MERS in 2012, Ebola in 2014, combined with the financial crisis, massive refugee flows, and revolutions in the Middle East and Greta Thunberg's shrill doomsday voice, had largely immunized the population against something as abstract as Covid19.

We call it precariat

WORK: Precarious working life is perhaps alluring with its freedom and flexibility. But with the precarious also comes the uncontrollable, the unpredictability and the lack of rights. Precarious work has become widespread in a subject such as journalism. Nevertheless, I am still tempted by the flexible tasks, by the sense of variability, freedom almost.

An ever-creeping feeling of loneliness

INSULATION: Acute loneliness affects both winners and losers. Daniel Schreiber visits a wealth of hermit literature – such as Thoreau's Walden and Defoe's Robinson Crusoe. But what does social withdrawal mean today – whether it is the occupational or pandemic condition?
