26. budapesti Polyphonix Fesztivál, Budapest
The 26th International Polyphonix Festival Budapest: the alternative poetry festival founded by Jean-Jacques Lebel in Paris is organized in a different city every year. After Paris, Naples, Rome, Marseille, and Brussels, Hungary hosted the event on two occasions. In 1988, the experimental artists came to Szeged, and in 1994 they came to Budapest. The Polyphonix Festival, in cooperation with Artpool, offered insights into the Russian experimental poetry scene: Rea Nikonova and Serge Segay presented their unique sound poetry show of gesture, vacuum, topophonic etc. abstract poems. Alongside the leading figures of the scene, such as Ernst Jandl, Julien Blaine, Timm Ulrichs, and Bernard Heidsieck, other artists appeared, such as Piotr Rypson, who gave a performance of Polish Futurist Sound Poetry.
