OVERBOOKED: <i>Does it seem to be persisting?</i>: Performance by Karl Holmqvist

Since the early nineties Karl Holmqvist has built a devoted following with spoken word performances that rhythmically repeat words and phrases mostly in English mostly taken from pop culture–song lines, exhibition titles, slogans from politics and or advertising–that connects the listeners with the moment and other listeners. It’s up to their own imagination to interpret what they hear through recognising and remembering lines or through learning them anew in a somewhat unexpected context.
