Arp : l’asconaute dans l’atelier de la nature
by Patrick Beurard-Valdoye
Between Art History and tactics of poetry, Patrick Beurard-Valdoye uses techniques close to police investigation. He invents an approach and a writing that aims to get as close to Hans Jean Arp and his work as possible. The text he’ll be reading here is based on research and investigations in Locarno and Ascona (Tessin). Author of nearly twenty works on poetic art, he recently published «Le narré des îles Schwitters» (éditions Al Dante).

Literary sources in Jean Arp’s later work
by Rudolf Suter
This conference treats readings (theological writings, the pre-Socratics, Novalis) that Arp made reference to in his later texts. Arp, the anti-rationalist who became a believer, interprets the quotes in his own way, integrating them into his world view and utilizing them to justify his concept of chance. Rudolf Suter is an independent Art Historian in Basle. He wrote his doctoral dissertation on Arp’s world view and later works.
