Robert Kocik Poetry Reading, May 28, New York City

Robert Kocik & Joel Kuszai Poetry Reading Wednesday, May 28, 8:00 pm at The Poetry Project

Robert Kocik, poet, essayist, artist, architect, eleemosynary entrepreneur, lives in Brooklyn, NY, where he directs the Bureau of Material Behaviors. As a builder, his niche is the realization of unknown architectural functions and missing civic services. He is currently developing a building based on 'prosody' and poets' imagined relevance to our society. His essays comprise a nascent field known as the Sore, Oversensitive Sciences (SOS). His publications include: Overcoming Fitness (Autonomedia, 2001), and Rhrurbarb (Field Books, 2007).

Joel Kuszai was born in Michigan during the Summer of Love (and riots). Since 1987, he has been the editor/publisher of more than one hundred small press publications, under the imprints of Meow Press and Factory School. In addition to poetry, he has written on anarchism and education, utopian public policy, and the history of student and resistance publications, especially in Detroit's tumultuous post-war period. Since 2005 he has curated the Southpaw Culture book series for the Factory School learning and production collective, which he co-founded in 2000. In 2007 he received a PSC-CUNY grant to edit the Fredy Perlman Reader, which will be published in 2008. He teaches writing and literature at Queens Community College.

The Poetry Project is located in St. Mark's Church at the corner of 2nd Ave and 10th St in Manhattan.
