Rage is often the explosive end of things, a struck match and fire, a storm over a city, a mother yelling at a police officer — these are expressions of rage.
But desire is what comes before — the need to prepare a meal moves the match to be struck, the sky’s need to release tension creates the storm, the instinct to protect a child moves the mother to anger.
Where does one begin and become the other? Where does one soften and the other harden? How do we write with both in mind.
An elegant zine that gathers the work of ten poets and writers based in the UK and Italy.
Bilingual, in Italian and English, it is a free limited edition publication, presented at Palazzo delle Esposizioni on the occasion of the Inua Ellams x SPAZIO GRIOT's R.A.P Party event.
This event is a collaboration between SPAZIO GRIOT, Inua Ellam and Orbita | Spellbound and supported by the British Council’s International Collaboration Grants.
Whose Wor(l)d Is This? - Diverse voices in Urban Literature in the UK and Italy è sostenuto dagli International Collaboration Grants del British Council, destinati a sostenere le organizzazioni britanniche e straniere a collaborare a progetti artistici internazionali. Il progetto esplora e promuove le pratiche letterarie dal vivo in relazione alla musica e al cinema, con eventi dedicati tra Roma e Londra e la pubblicazione di una zine in edizione limitata.
