Manipulate reality

To reorder space one needs to redefine space. For this kind of artistic intervention I use the term “applied art”, which means art applied in public context and space. This is to describe an artistic strategy focussing problems in society to then intervene, interact and transcend into another construction of reality. I create tools to create this new reality in other peoples minds…

Sometimes I laugh at the wrong time

Sunday 25.9.2022 16:00
Brücken Plac Mostowy, C-P-E-Bach-Str. 11A, D-15230 Frankfurt (Oder)

Reading by Yasser Niksada (Afghanistan/Iran) with Manfred Möck, actor in collaboration with The Poetry Project Berlin.
Yasser Niksada (*2002) comes from the Panshir Valley in Afghanistan. More than ten years ago, the Niksadas fled to Tehran, where they still live as refugees. “But that’s no life,” says Yasser, so the family sent the then 13-year-old on a journey to Europe, an arduous escape over water and land. One of the biggest differences between Tehran and Berlin for Yasser is the absence of his two brothers and sisters, but above all he misses his parents. Today, after finishing school, he has started his education. In the poems he writes in his mother tongue, Persian, Yasser deals with the feeling of being torn apart and processes the experiences of his flight. In Eastern cultures, poetry allows people to express their own feelings, even if they seem unspeakable at first. Even children are familiar with this art because their elders tell them stories in verse.
In the Poetry Project Berlin, Yasser found the space to formulate his figurative language in poems and present it to the public.
Together with actor Manfred Möck, he has now composed a reading in which Niksada’s texts can be experienced in Persian and German.
