In this dynamic seminar and video presentation by José Joaquín Prieto, co-founder of the Chilean artistic collective Casagrande, Prieto discusses the creation of "Rain of Poems." A performance that Casagrande has brought to six cities that have experienced aerial bombing (including Berlin, Dubrovnik, Guernica, Santiago de Chile, Warsaw and, most recently, London), "Rain of Poems" involves the dropping of over 100,000 poems from helicopters and planes in a gesture of peace and remembrance. Co-sponsored by the Woodberry Poetry Room and the ARTS@DRCLAS program of the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies.
Date: November 5, 2012, recorded at the Woodberry Poetry Room, Harvard University.
