Reading in English -- Christian Ide Hintze

Poet Christian Ide Hintze is known for his beat poems and is seen as one of Austria's finest new media poetry artists. His understanding of poetry is widely spread and he uses digital media to bridge his works to artistic scopes such as art, music, poetry, texts as well as new media poetry.

Hintze is dean of the Vienna Poetry School, an independent artist's school that formed as an international symposium on literature and focuses on the multimedia and multilingual aspects of poetry. Among its teachers were famous Austrians like writer HC. Artmann, musician Falco and famous singers like Nick Cave and many others.

Christian Ide Hintze will present gestural poems along with performances. He will lecture as well as demonstrate his work through visual poetry. Furthermore, the artist will also talk about his working experience in the United States, as he taught as the first German teacher in the Kerouac School in Boulder, Colorado.

The evening promises to be a conglomerate of different styles of poetry with which the audience gets taken into a world of poetry, music and performance art. This literature reading is part of Zeitgeist DC series, a cycle of contemporary literature from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
