"Das Gehirn in der Leitung" - by wortwerft
With his text "Das Gehirn in der Leitung", Clemens Marschall tries to offer a hypothesis what it would sound like, if one would have broadcast a radio show, live and unfiltered, directly from the brain of Jesus Christ Allin – a hardcore punk singer and bandleader best remembered for his notorious live performances that typically featured wildly transgressive acts. This means that his thoughts have to be disentangled from an x-dimensional rhizome, and reduced to only two levels: the words and the sound. At the end of this broadcast from the brain, the phone rings. It’s Maria Seisenbacher, sitting on the subway, who’s calling and, again, broadcasting live and directly from another place. The speaking self / performer disappears here, is not necessary, and changes position from on stage to on line. The subway passengers are now also involuntary receivers who can’t escape from the sound.
are writers coming from very different literary directions, and not forming a unity, but rather developing a pluralistic dynamics with a broad spectrum. They form joint ventures with image and sound, the producers of which are to be found with Wortwerft, as well as other platforms like the literary magazine "Keine Delikatessen".
