Čo je to poetoterapia?

Writing is the ultimate psychiatrist.“ (CH. Bukowski)

Poézia je dôležitým sprievodcom ľudstva už od dávnych čias, ide o jednu z najstarších foriem literatúry. Podobne ako iné druhy umenia i poézia preukazuje mocný citový vplyv na človeka, pôsobí náladotvorne, umožňuje abstrahovať a transformovať emóciu do slov, čím zhmotňuje žitú skúsenosť.

Planet HD 131399A or a hands-on DADA according to Tristan Tzara’s Manual

How much can one mine from a single newspaper cut-out by the magical approach of the DADA manifesto? We wanted to have a tangible, hands-on result. That is exactly why we have participated (with you) in the “DADA-action” and took action. Or the words, to be more exact. more

100 Years of Dada or How to Create a Dadaist Poem

It was in a cosmonaut-like costume and it was in July 1916 in the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich when the German poet Hugo Ball introduced his manifesto and spoke out "DADA". This was the magical word, the magic formula against all horrors of the war, against all absurd conflicts ... more

Poetry of Miniature as Street Art

Slinkachu is a British street artist, photographer and a visual “poet” of people miniatures and of the most trivial and overlooked corners of our everyday lives. His project Little People in the City is a celebration of a detail in various senses, where all the seemingly overlooked everyday places acquire new dimensions and move us to think about our lives. more
