Bundelpresentatie SLANGEN

Book launch SLANGEN (SNAKES)

SLANGEN (SNAKES), the newest poetry collection by Dominique De Groen published by het balanseer, is a dark, shimmering, subterranean rebirth, coiling in the caverns of pop culture, in nature's mummified corpse, in wounds and rotting flesh, in artificial deserts and on well-oiled dad bods, intertwined with the algorithms strangling the present.On 26/04, at 20:00, the collection sheds its snakeskin at Kunsthal. In addition to Dominique, the fantastic poets Nele Buyst and Maxime Garcia Diaz will read from their work.
