Janet Kuypers’ “Our Cultural Independence and Achieving Global Freedom” 7/1/17 poetry feature @ Austin’s the Baha’i Center

    Below are video links and poem text links from the July 1st 2017 (7/1/17, or 20170701) poetry performance “Our Cultural Independence and Achieving Global Freedom” (accompanied by Hotel Music “Amongst Hills” from the HA!Man of South Africa) of Janet Kuypers’ Austin poetry feature through ”Expressions Supports Cultural Independence!” at Austin’s the Bahá’í Center.

    In this show, Janet Kuypers decided to tackle different forms of freedom and independence, as highlighted in her first poem “fader, his mädchen and the Führer”), about giving rights to a Socialist (and rapidly becoming Fascist) government, read to her recorded music of playing an electric bass with a bow. The HA!Man of South Africa’s “amongst hills” then played foe the remainder of her show, when she then switched gears by talking about freedom from oppression and independence from sexism in “of independence or freedom”, before moving to new poems about independence from idolatry in “Xerostomia”. Her final longer poem then tackles searching for cultural and intellectual independence and respect in “Utopia never happened”.

    Before the show started she also released copies to people there of a Scars Publications cc&d bonus release chapbook of the writings she was performing in her show (in the order they were performed). All of the pieces from this evening’s reading were also released electronically in an online “Our Cultural Independence and Achieving Global Freedom” chapbook, which you can download as a PDF file for free any time.
