A series of workshops on marks, figures, designs, and words, “Heart Tattoos” will start with the tat-tat of striking pen to paper before exploring the possibilities of using the body as a record. Whether as part of ornament, ritual, trauma, or other factors, what do we inscribe onto our bodies, and what’s commemorated there forever? Throughout our time together, we’ll write poems, craft song lyrics, illustrate writing, and record audio. Possible readings include works from Roque Dalton, Akilah Oliver, Anne Waldman, María Sabina, Antonin Artaud, Alejandra Pizarnick, and Néstor Perlongher.
4 Mondays | Feb 5 – Feb 26 | 6-8pm | $200 ($180 for Members)
