Baroness Elsa's em dashes - Astrid Seme

Baroness Elsa’s em dashes

An anthology of dashing in print, poetry & performance - Astrid Seme

13,00  inkl. MwSt., zzgl. Versand

The purpose of the em dash is wide-ranging—as an appropriation of silence, as acting dissonance, as interruption, as occupying space. This anthology zooms into the pointed use of em dashes in the poems of pioneering Dadaist artist, Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven (1874–1927). more

Her poems, performances, costumes and life-style all made a point of challenging extremely bourgeois artistic and moral conventions with an unapologetically feminist, proto-punk aesthetic. The reader will find Elsa’s works in conversation with the likes of well-known dashers such as Gertrude Stein, Lawrence Sterne, Heinrich von Kleist or the queen of dashing herself Emily Dickinson.
