Signe Gjessing & Selby Wynn Schwartz: The Invention of Freedom

Revel in the possibilities of art with Signe Gjessing and Selby Wynn Schwartz. Prize-winning Danish poet Signe Gjessing presents Tractatus Philosophico-Poeticus, reimagining Wittgenstein’s seminal philosophical text of 1922 to make language and reality something altogether wilder. Selby Wynn Schwartz’s novel After Sappho follows the female artists and sapphists who struggled for freedom on the eve of the 20th century. Chaired by Heather Parry.
