After the Eclipse @ Flutgraben e.V., Mar 22

, 18 March 2015

The second iteration of a new reading series hosted by Ebba Fransén Waldhör and Imri Kahn, After the Eclipse, is happening at Berlin’s Flutgraben e.V. on Sunday, March 22.

Following the week’s much anticipated solar eclipse, readings from Kahn, Elvia Wilk, Hannah Black, Sarah M. Harrison, Anna Zett, Vappu Jalonen and Phoebe Blatton, v will feature along with lighting design by Fransén Waldhör.

Here’s a description from the After the Eclipse participants:

Those who can’t help it best have at hand rather a pinhole viewer or solar goggles, or watch its reflection on a plain white piece of office paper.

…everyone else, let’s add to the list. Avoid the ordinary: sleeping, sitting on the toilet, eating, putting your hands into your pockets or onto another– as these comings and goings may leave one only more vulnerable…
