Roger d' Hondt ; Alain Arais-Misson : From the Cutting-Floor of the Public Poem Ghent, Belgium, MER Paper Kunsthalle, 2013. 1.. Paperback, 80 pages, ENG, 230 x 160 x 10 mm, New condition, illustrated in colour / b/w. In the mid-sixties, a young Belgian-American experimental/visual poet, Alain Arias-Misson, returned to his birthplace Brussels, which his family had fled during World War II for New York. Back in Brussels the poet initiated his well-known "public poems", which predate the genre performance and are all up to today different from one another and never repeated. For Arias-Misson, the street is the page upon which the poem can be drawn. The city can be construed as a text. It is a focal point of socio-political signs, and its syntax and semantics can be made "legible" by introducing highly graphic, linguistic and non-linguistic clues in the street. Arias-Misson's public poems are always specific to the urban setting, and to the political moment in which they were created. His poems are sometimes presented in dreamlike sequences, often provoking "public disorder" in cities throughout Europe as well as forays into New York and Los Angeles.
