Text Festival, 2011

Welcome to the Text Festival.

The Text Festival in Bury is an internationally recognised event investigating contemporary language art (poetry, text art, sound and media text, live art). Opening on 29 April 2011, the next Festival will be its third manifestation and run into July.

Against the background of global stylistic multiplicity, the use of language spans many artforms and may even be a unifying field of enquiry, a new definition and a new field of international linguistic art practice and dialogue. The Bury Festival is the leading focus of language in 21st Century art.

The Festival specialises in experiments, in new experiences, in performances and exhibitions that mix artforms in ground-breaking combinations that challenge traditional language art boundaries and offer artists a forum for dialogue and exchange of ideas.

Events:

The opening: 

Ron Silliman (USA), Satu Kaikkonen & Karri Kokko (FIN), and Phil Minton's Bury Feral Choir:

re. your last message. your lies, it seems, are unlimited and my usage in them seems as boundless. quite obviously you are keen to focus your degraded logic, like a missile, upon my greater experience of the kind of life you say you wish to live. i say again: i do not believe you. you keep coming back, yet you will find no satisfaction in anything i say to your questions, and i will not answer them. after this message i will block you, and i will leave unopened all the other messages you send via your numerous fake profiles and proxy addresses. this really is a matter for authority, and if you push this further i will scream your house down. i will say this ... everything is otherwise, nothing is driven by any selfless majority or longing to prepare unconditional extensions from your supposed freewill. i may range too narrowly, and i know i am kept unclad in the animal confines of the exploited, but i equally know confidence is neither beloved nor useful. you are not fearless as you assume - neither are you feared. you simply have your three names.

Dear Surrealist Friends

We have a few words to say,
to a certain fixed perception of ‘Turkey’ adopted from fifty years ago, to those who are using “minority” representation -“politically added value” on the rise in the West- to declare an intellectual competence on such issue, to an inconsistent discourse which emphasize ‘ethnic’ identity in a personal complaint while using Surrealism as a pretext, to an execution of unknown origin which is being carried out by means of jerrybuilt information in Surrealist Community whose only ancestor is imagination and finally to a collusion of inquiry conducted to rationalize the above mentioned attempt.We do not state that we do not have other discussions with S.E.T (Surrealist Action Turkey) but in any case we would like to state what we observe here, S.E.T. discovers new ways of expression in Turkey in guidance of Surrealism and acts as the spokesperson of the prophetical methods of Surrealism using its own means without seeking any profit at all. Rafet Arslan, the maintainer and a veteran of this group, has connections with neither Stalinism nor Fascism. The methods he is employing is not related with any basic politic motif other than a ‘revolt’ against the hypnotic sleep of daily life.

Surrealism has no central authority, alleging that it has one, will create the very cults condemned by Surrealism itself and will commit the biggest disrespect to its entire heritage.

This saddening attempt by Ody Saban, to return to this land that she chose to leave years ago, her desire to utter words above the words of people who live and embosom their dreams here, her insistence to exert a totalitarian view arising from her own unconscious in order to be indisputably accepted as a kind of ‘mother’, and her attempt to sabotage the dreams of this land, are all unacceptable for us.

Surrealism has always been and always will be capable of defending itself in any era and anywhere. Surrealism does not need to be defended and protected by anybody. It is nobody’s property. We wish nothing but the universal calls to be used only, for the debates of present problems that Surrealist esprit is exposed to, to design new grounds of expression that would serve the purposes of the Surrealist experience, and to ensure the everlasting idiosyncratic friendship of a universal community which will accompany Surrealist discoveries leading to “revolution”.

We greet you all,
