Experiencing Interruptions?

The White Night!

Serbian slam champion Goran Zivkovic Gorki performs in a film by Dragana Nikolic, with the poem Bela noć! (The White Night!) From his new illustrated poetry book Psihoslajdovi (The Psychoslides). His poetry supports the concept of poetic performance without reading from a paper.
Apocalyptic lullabies, psycho slides, street prophecy, gentle as a fist in the stomach: anti-poetry, graffiti poetry on the margins of culture, which is on the margin of society. The White Night, a nightmare without exit, utopian place, a hideaway and a nuthouse. A rebellion against apathy, against sitting in front of the TV and sleepiness of the spirit. Love as a rebellion. As the only salvation from meaninglessness.
