Secretary of Poetry (2020)
Secretary of Poetry is a poetic project by Diandra Alar and Antonio Pérez Río. Each piece of video is a poem that is part of the Poetic Plan for the Transition towards the New Normality, elaborated by the Poetic Secretariat with words from the Plan for the Transition towards the New Normality of the Ministry of Health of the Government of Spain.
It's an exercise in appropriationism that aims to free administrative language from its ties and make it the raw material of poetry, subverting the forced structures and commonplaces of any official document, claiming the hidden essence of political language: the absurd.
Dadaism or death.
