Why Words Now: Post Brothers
Post Brothers, Helga Just Christoffersen, Simon Dybbroe Møller
On October 6, 2020, Art Hub and The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts welcomed Post Brothers, an enthusiast, word processor, and curator.
Post Brother’s lecture, titled A Tongue Without a Body, Which Writes, discussed practices of word processing within and around art. Considering how cultural objects drive specific textual logics, this presentation addressed the use and abuse of words, as well as the peculiar and precarious labor of putting words in artists’ and institutions’ mouths.
