#11 – “Whose English?” – frieze d/e Issue 4: Launch and Roundtable with Special Guests! / by Alexander Hahn

Dear Friends,

Our upcoming fourth issue marks the first full year of our dual-language quarterly.

To celebrate the release of our spring issue, we’re hosting a launch event at the Salon Populaire at 7pm on March 10.

In keeping with the magazine’s bilingual nature, we’ll be asking questions about the nature of ‘Globish’, or global English: how does the predominance of the English language affect art, writing and culture?

Please join us in hearing Karl Holmqvist and Jan Verwoert, Alix Rule, and Vincenzo Latronico read, perform, and give their thoughts on this theme.

This launch is the first in a series of talks on the theme of language, artistic production, and criticism that we will be hosting during the month of March. More details to follow.

This event is free and open to the public, so please do bring your friends.

We look forward to seeing you there.
