Release imprisoned journalists worldwide

UN should demand release of jailed
journalists amid COVID-19 pandemic

CPJ is calling on several UN special mandate holders to join its effort to secure the release of all jailed journalists globally in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. At least 250 journalists are behind bars for their work, according to CPJ’s most recent prison census.

• Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) – 11 April 2020

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Committee to Protect Journalists calls on governments to release all journalists from their prisons. On behalf of more than 250 journalists behind bars, we call on authorities to free these political prisoners immediately and unconditionally.

For journalists jailed in countries affected by the virus, freedom is now a matter of life and death. Imprisoned journalists have no control over their surroundings, cannot choose to isolate, and are often denied necessary medical care.

The World Health Organization states that “People deprived of their liberty, and those living or working in enclosed environments in their close proximity, are likely to be more vulnerable to the COVID-19 disease than the general population.”

Global press freedom and human rights organizations are calling on world leaders to immediately release all imprisoned journalists. Add your voice to the call and sign our petition today!

The Committee to Protect Journalists submitted a call to several U.N. special mandate holders yesterday encouraging them to join CPJ’s effort to secure the release of all jailed journalists globally in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

Poetry International Festival 2020 postponed

With a heavy heart Poetry International has decided to postpone the Poetry International Festival 2020, which was to take place June 25-28 at the de Doelen halls in Rotterdam. We were looking forward to it very much.

Under the theme What You Will Hear Is True, we were well underway to creating a truly unforgettable 51st festival, much as we did during our successful anniversary edition in 2019, together with poets, translators, musicians, volunteers, partners, and of course the audience.

Because of the current COVID-19 crisis, and the necessary measures limiting movement that have been taken in the Netherlands and abroad, it has proven impossible to prepare a festival worthy of its participants by the end of June.

What You Will Hear Is True: Poetry International Festival 2020 postponed

Russian activist and artist, Yulia Tsvetkova, is facing six year sentence for drawing the female body

 

Russian activist and artist, Yulia Tsvetkova, is facing prosecution and harassment for defending women’s and LGBTI rights.

She has been under house arrest since 22 November, under absurd charges of “production and dissemination of pornography” for her drawings of the female body. She is facing up to six years in prison if convicted. Yulia Tsvetkova is a prisoner of conscience and must be immediately and unconditionally released.

Yulia Tsvetkova is an LGBTI and women’s rights activist, artist and stage director, from Komsomolsk-on-Amur, the Russian Far East.

She was detained on 20 November 2019 and put on house arrest two days later, after being charged with the “production and dissemination of pornographic materials”, for making body positive drawings of the female body and sharing them on social media.

Her drawings included pictures of female reproductive organs, and she shared them online as part of her women’s empowerment campaign.

On the day of her arrest, police searched Yulia’s apartment and the children’s educational club where she worked previously. The police seized her electronic devices, documents, and brochures on gender issues. Yulia later said that during the search police officers referred to her as a “lesbian, sex trainer and propagandist leader”.

  

Yulia has been the target of an overtly homophobic campaign since March 2019, when she was forced to leave Merak, the amateur youth theatre company she worked at, after police launched an investigation into alleged “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations among minors”.

The investigation was launched in reaction to Yulia’s anti-bullying, anti-discrimination play, Blue and Pink.

On 11 December 2019 Yulia was found guilty of “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations among minors”, and fined 50,000 rubles (approximately 600 GBP), for serving as the administrator of two LGBTI online communities on the popular Russian social media site, VKontakte.

Both of the online communities were properly marked as “18+”, as required by Russian law. Even under the confines of the homophobic Russian “gay propaganda” legislation, the “offence” should only be valid if the “propaganda” material is targeted at people under the age of 18.

On 17 January, Yulia informed the media that new proceedings had been opened against her, under the same Article of the Code of Administrative Offences that she had previously been charged under. This time she was being prosecuted for posting a drawing she made depicting two same-sex couples with child on social media, alongside the statement, “Family is where love is. Support LGBT+ families”.

She published the drawing in support of a same-sex couple who were forced to flee Russia with their adopted children after authorities threatened to remove their children from their custody.

Morning Glory on the Vine. Early Songs and Drawings by Joni Mitchell

Originally handcrafted in 1971 as a gift for friends, this edition of Joni Mitchell’s best-loved poems, illustrations, watercolours and hand-lettered song lyrics is now publicly available for the first time. The perfect present for any Joni Mitchell fan.

Joni Mitchell is a Canadian singer-songwriter whose songs have helped define an era and a generation. She has received many accolades, including nine Grammy Awards, and has released 19 studio albums, including Blue in 1971. Mitchell, with roots in visual art, has designed most of her own album covers. Among her numerous honours, she was awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2002 and was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2007.

The result was a handmade book, with only one hundred copies produced, filled with Joni’s hand-written lyrics and reproductions of many of her stunning drawings — portraits, abstracts, random concertgoers, and more.

Each was given to a friend and, until now, the edition has remained private. Today, with Morning Glory on the Vine, Joni’s long-ago personal Christmas present is a present to us all.

A gorgeous compendium of Joni Mitchell’s handwritten lyrics and watercolor paintings, originally handcrafted as a gift for a select group of friends in 1971 and now available to the public for the first time.

In 1971, as her album Blue topped charts around the world, Joni Mitchell crafted one hundred copies of Morning Glory on the Vine as a holiday gift for her closest friends. For this stunningly beautiful book, Joni hand-wrote an exquisite selection of her own lyrics and poems and illustrated them with more than thirty of her original paintings and watercolors. Hand-crafted, signed, and numbered in Los Angeles, the existing copies of this labor of love have rarely been seen in the past half-century.

Now, as Joni celebrates her seventy-fifth birthday, Morning Glory on the Vine: Early Songs and Drawings is available widely for the first time. In this faithfully reproduced facsimile edition, Joni’s best-loved lyrics and poems spill across the pages in her own elegant script. The lively, full-color watercolor paintings depict a superb array of landscapes, still-lifes, portraits of friends, self portraits, innovative abstractions, and more.

All the paintings from the original book are included, along with several additional works that Joni had intended to include for her friends in 1971. Finally, the refreshed volume features an original introduction written by Joni herself. Morning Glory on the Vine is a gorgeous and intimate keepsake and an invitation to explore anew the dazzling, visionary world of Joni Mitchell.

JONI MITCHELL is widely regarded as one of the greatest singer-songwriters of her generation. Her album Blue (1971) is often cited as one of the best albums of all time. Mitchell has won nine Grammys in various categories, including traditional pop, pop music and lifetime achievement. Born in Canada, she now lives in her longtime home of Los Angeles.

From the Publisher:

joni mitchell morning glory on the vine
“I sing my sorrow, and I paint my joy.” – Joni Mitchell

In the early 1970s I used to carry a sketchbook around with me everywhere I went. I drew with colored pens. Once when I was sketching my audience in Central Park, they had to drag me onto the stage. After a while I had quite a collection of drawings. The drawings were becoming more important to me than the music at that time.
I had put the drawings into a ring binder accompanied by hand-written lyrics. Elliot Roberts, my manager, and David Geffen, my agent, took my binder of drawings and lyrics and had a limited edition of books made up.
It’s been a long time coming in making this book public, but we’re publishing it now. Work is meant to be seen, or heard, as the case may be.

Sjon Brands & Nico de Wit: Homo Ludens (absurdistische assemblages & bronstransformaties)

 

Tilburg is bij uitstek een stad van samenwerking. Aan de basis van het bloeiende culturele klimaat in deze stad bewegen zich talloze kunstenaars uit allerlei richtingen die met elkaar samenwerken, elkaar motiveren en inspireren. Hard nodig in deze tijd, waarin het voor nogal wat kunstenaars een kwestie van overleven is.

Ondanks uiteenlopende verschillen in hun werk hebben Niko de Wit en Sjon Brands elkaar gevonden. De Wit’s beelden zijn abstracter en doortrokken van elementaire vormen, Brands’ werk is herkenbaar aan onderdelen en eerder surrealistisch als geheel. Desondanks hebben zij elkaar getroffen in eenzelfde speelse gezindheid bij het maken van beelden.

De tentoonstelling ‘Homo Ludens’ draait om de spelende mens, spelen als noodzakelijke voorwaarde voor beschaving, cultuur en kunst. Johan Huizinga’s magistrale werk ‘Homo Ludens’, onderscheidde de spelende mens als tegenhanger van de denkende mens (homo sapiens) en de werkende mens (homo faber).

Hij benoemde spelen als fundament ván onze cultuur, als een ode aan vrijheid, alleen in vrijheid kan spel zich ontplooien en cultuur zich ontwikkelen. Spelen vereist, volgens Huizinga, concentratie, doelgerichte aandacht en vrijheid van beslommeringen. Onze hedendaagse samenleving met zijn massamedia verwart en versnippert daarentegen denken en activiteit, is niet meer in staat voor zichzelf een grote vorm of een leidend ideaal te vinden. Voor beide kunstenaars in deze expositie is spelen derhalve een ‘conditio sine qua non’ voor onderzoeken, ontdekken, oorspronkelijkheid, èn plezier.

Niko de Wit
Beeldhouwer Niko de Wit (Bergen op Zoom, 1948) viert dit jaar zijn vijftigjarig jubileum als beeldhouwer en is vooral bekend van zijn architecturale en monumentale werken. In Tilburg de ‘Dansende Schilpadden’ in de Muzentuin en de ‘Poort’ op Carré. Hoewel deze werken soms wat ernstig ogen, kenmerkt Niko’s ontwerpproces boven­genoemde grondhouding: spelen. Hij combineert inhoudelijk niet bij elkaar horende artefacten tot nieuwe, wat vervreemding oproepende, beelden. Via spelen met vormen, omkeren en experimenteren met gietprocessen. Als hij vertelt over zijn nieuwe oeuvre aan kleinschalige verrassende beelden in brons danst het plezier in zijn ogen.

Sjon Brands
Sjon Brands (Tilburg, 1948) is beeldend kunstenaar en maakt beelden uit gebruiksvoorwerpen en speelgoed, zoals dadaïstisiche paradijsvogels, grote flamboyante luchtschepen, ready-mades en satirische installaties van (protesterende) Barbie’s. Hij werkt niet vanuit vooraf bedachte concepten, zijn werk ontstaat uit het spelen met (onderdelen van) objecten die hij in de loop van de tijd heeft gevonden, verzameld of gekregen, uit het eindeloos combineren van verschillende vormen, omkeren, anders proberen, heel veel kijken en ook toeval. Spelen dus.

The Penguin Book of Oulipo: Queneau, Perec, Calvino and the Adventure of Form by Philip Terry (Editor)

Brought together for the first time, here are 100 pieces of ‘Oulipo’ writing, celebrating the literary group who revelled in maths problems, puzzles, trickery, wordplay and conundrums.

Featuring writers including Georges Perec, Raymond Queneau and Italo Calvino, it includes poems, short stories, word games and even recipes. Alongside these famous Oulipians, are ‘anticipatory’ wordsmiths who crafted language with unusual constraints and literary tricks, from Jonathan Swift to Lewis Carroll.

Philip Terry is a translator, and a writer of fiction and poetry. He has translated the work of Georges Perec, Stéphane Mallarmé and Raymond Queneau, and is the author of the novel tapestry, shortlisted for the Goldsmiths Prize.

His poetry volumes include Oulipoems, Shakespeare’s Sonnets, Dante’s Inferno (a Times Literary Supplement Book of the Year, London Review Bookshop Book of the Week, and recipient of a Society of Authors Travelling Scholarship Prize), Quennets, and Dictator, a version of the Epic of Gilgamesh in Globish.

He is currently translating  Ice Age signs from the caves at Lascaux.

• ‘Philip Terry’s collection is packed with fabulous, wide-ranging work that displays the full ingenuity, brio and originality of Oulipian ideals in action. An exhilarating feat of in-depth reading, and translating, it takes its place as the definitive anthology in English for decades to come.’ – Marina Warner

• Philip Terry’s playful selection will appeal to lovers of word games, puzzles and literary delights.

Forever Words. The Unknown Poems by Johnny Cash

These never-before-published poems by Johnny Cash make the perfect gifts for music lovers and fans alike.

Edited and introduced by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon with a foreword by John Carter Cash, this poetry collection is illustrated with facsimile reproductions of Cash’s own handwritten pages. Now an album with music by Rosanne Cash, Brad Paisley, Willie Nelson, Kacey Musgraves, Elvis Costello, and more.

Since his first recordings in 1955, Johnny Cash has been an icon in the music world. In this collection of poems and song lyrics that have never been published before, we see the world through his eyes and view his reflection on his own interior reality, his frailties and his strengths alike. In his hallmark voice, he pens verses about love, pain, freedom, and mortality, and expresses insights on culture, his family, his fame, even Christmas. Forever Words confirms Johnny Cash as a brilliant and singular American literary figure. His music is a part of our collective history, and here the depth of his artistry and talent become even more evident.

JOHNNY CASH (1932–2003) was an American icon and country music superstar. He performed everywhere from Folsom State Prison to the White House. In 1980 he became the youngest living person to be chosen for the Country Music Hall of Fame; he was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1977, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1992, and the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2010. A recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors as well as the National Medal of Arts, he won nineteen Grammy Awards, four of them posthumously.

PAUL MULDOON is the author of twelve collections of verse, including Moy Sand and Gravel, for which he won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. He is the Howard G. B. Clark Profes­sor at Princeton University, and between 1999 and 2004 he was Professor of Poetry at Oxford. Since 2007, Muldoon has been poetry editor of The New Yorker. He is a fellow of the Royal Soci­ety of Literature and of the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

Van Eyck. Een optische revolutie. De grootste Jan van Eyck-tentoonstelling ooit

  

In 2020 organiseert het Museum voor Schone Kunsten (MSK) Gent de grootste Jan van Eyck-tentoonstelling ooit. Wereldwijd zijn er van deze Vlaamse meester slechts een twintigtal werken bewaard. Zeker de helft daarvan reist naar ons museum. Hier worden ze samengebracht met werk uit Van Eycks atelier en kopieën van intussen verdwenen schilderijen. Maar ook met meer dan 100 topstukken uit de late middeleeuwen. Daarvoor worden maar liefst 13 museumzalen heringericht.

Het Museum voor Schone Kunsten (MSK) in Gent is een museum voor jong en oud. Het is een levendige ontmoetingsplaats waar je kunst van de Middeleeuwen tot vandaag ontdekt in een unieke omgeving. Tijdens de tentoonstelling ‘Van Eyck. Een optische revolutie’ maken we de Middeleeuwse kunst van Van Eyck en zijn getalenteerde tijdgenoten tastbaar in het nu. Iedereen komt dichterbij Van Eyck dan ooit en ontdekt zo hoe revolutionair Van Eyck toen was en hoe belangrijk hij nu nog steeds is.

Child refugee faces prison over Facebook posts

 

Tujan al-Bukhaiti is a 17-year-old Yemeni refugee. She is being tried in Jordan on charges of ‘blasphemy’ and ‘insulting religious figures’ over her social media posts, including posts by her dad that she has shared. Stopped from going to school

On 11 December 2019 Tujan’s school threatened to expel her for sharing ‘beliefs that do not represent the school’ on her Facebook page. When she refused their ultimatum they banned her from attending classes.
A week later she was brought in by police for questioning and a statement was taken without her parents or lawyer there. This is illegal and violates her right to a fair trial.

When she was questioned she says that an officer went through her Facebook page insulting various members of her family.

Tujan has been made to go to court three times for her trial and each time the date has been postponed. She is facing potentially a month in prison and a lifetime criminal record just for expressing her views. If Jordan allows the trial to go ahead they will be breaking international law by violating her right to freedom of expression. This young woman should not be punished just for speaking her mind.

Tujan is just a teenager. As a refugee, she’s already been through so much. Jordan should drop this case immediately and let her get on with her studies.

Please send an email to Jordan’s Minister of Justice .

85ste Boekenweek van zaterdag 7 t/m zondag 15 maart 2020

 

 Rebellen en dwarsdenkers

De 85ste Boekenweek staat in het teken van hen die ons voorstellingsvermogen vergroten: de rebellen en dwarsdenkers. Het lezen van boeken zet namelijk aan tot nadenken, zodat lezers begrip ontwikkelen voor anderen en minder vasthouden aan vooroordelen (bron: KVB Boekwerk, De impact van het boek). Van de dromerige dwarsdenker die veilig thuis afreist naar een andere wereld tot de rebel die zijn messcherpe pen als wapen gebruikt tegen de status quo. In de literatuur is er ruimte voor al die geluiden. Het lef van schrijvers om taboes te doorbreken en een steen in de vijver te gooien is van levensbelang voor onze samenleving. Daarom koesteren we de vrijheid die door schrijvers genomen wordt om tegen de stroom in te werken, om dwars en vervelend te zijn, onaangepast en onafhankelijk.

 

 Een greep uit rebelse boeken en dwarse schrijvers

De rebellen van de literatuur hebben altijd ons denken beïnvloed: stoere, onorthodoxe, eigengereide auteurs als Multatuli, Annie M.G. Schmidt, Willem Frederik Hermans, Astrid Roemer, Dimitri Verhulst en Charlotte Mutsaers hebben werelden geopend. Rebelse personages en dwarse karakters zoals Don Quichot, Madame Bovary, Tommy Wieringa’s Joe Speedboot, Esther Gerritsens Roxy en Hava uit Aafke Romeijns Concept M houden een spiegel voor en laten ons nadenken over wie wij zijn. Schrijvers als Jan Cremer, Connie Palmen, Anna Blaman en Jan Wolkers zoeken grenzen van de literatuur op en verleggen ze. Boeken kunnen weerstand oproepen, kunnen verboden worden en verbrand, maar de kracht van de woorden laat zich niet temmen. Nabokovs Lolita, Houellebecqs Onderworpen of Erasmus’ Lof der zotheid hebben onder vuur gelegen, maar zijn inmiddels onmiskenbare oriëntatiepunten in het literaire landschap. Om de steeds veranderende wereld om ons heen te begrijpen, hebben we dwarsdenkers en ordescheppers nodig. Renate Rubinstein en Anton de Kom hebben ons bewust gemaakt van onze oogkleppen. Ook door non-fictie prikkelen, stimuleren en scherpen we onze geest. Het maatschappelijk debat op de meest uiteenlopende onderwerpen wordt bepaald door dappere en dwarse denkers: Dick Swaab en Rosanne Hertzberger, Rutger Bregman en Joris Luyendijk, Anousha Nzume en Paul Scheffer.

 

• De 85ste Boekenweek vindt plaats van zaterdag 7 t/m zondag 15 maart 2020

Gouden Ganzenveerlaureaat 2020 voor Abdelkader Benali

De Academie De Gouden Ganzenveer kent De Gouden Ganzenveer 2020 toe aan schrijver en programmamaker Abdelkader Benali. Academievoorzitter Jet Bussemaker maakte de laureaat op 11 januari bekend in het radioprogramma De Taalstaat.

De Academie De Gouden Ganzenveer eert Benali als ambassadeur van de Nederlandse taal die met zijn enthousiasmerende inzet jongeren weet te bereiken. Met zijn veelzijdige pen die hij speels en creatief inzet, slaat hij een brug tussen culturen. Zijn toewijding aan de publieke zaak van het geschreven woord, zijn grote bijdrage –juist vanuit een Marokkaanse achtergrond- maken hem tot de Gouden Ganzenveerlaureaat 2020.

De prijsuitreiking vindt plaats op donderdag 2 april a.s. in Amsterdam. Een weerslag van deze bijeenkomst wordt vastgelegd in een speciale uitgave, die in de loop van het jaar zal verschijnen.

De Academie, een initiatief van het bestuur van stichting De Gouden Ganzenveer, kent jaarlijks deze culturele prijs toe. De leden zijn afkomstig uit de wereld van cultuur, wetenschap, politiek en het bedrijfsleven.

Met deze onderscheiding wil de Academie het geschreven en gedrukte woord in het Nederlands taalgebied onder de aandacht brengen.

Voorgaande laureaten zijn Ian Buruma, Antjie Krog, Arnon Grunberg, Xandra Schutte, Geert Mak, David Van Reybrouck, Ramsey Nasr, Annejet van der Zijl, Remco Campert, Joke van Leeuwen, Adriaan van Dis, Joost Zwagerman, Tom Lanoye, Peter van Straaten, Maria Goos, Kees van Kooten, Jan Blokker en Michaël Zeeman.

Uitgebreide informatie is te vinden op www.goudenganzenveer.nl

“Abdelkader Benali, (Ighazzazen, Marokko, 1975) schrijft romans, verhalen en poëzie, maar ook toneel en journalistiek werk. Bruiloft aan zee is zijn bejubelde en bekroonde debuut, dat een internationale bestseller werd. Nadien verschenen van zijn hand vele verschillende boeken, zoals de Marathonloper, het Marokkaanse huis-, tuin- en keukenkookboek Casa Benali en Brief aan mijn dochter, waarmee hij ook in de theaters stond met Lavinia Meijer, de poëziebundel Wax Hollandais en in 2019 de roman De weekendmiljonair.

Benali presenteerde meerdere tv-programma’s waarin hij schrijvers interviewde onder andere De schrijver en de stad en Benali boekt alsook Chez Benali, een culinair-historische ontdekkingsreis door zijn geboorteland.
Daarnaast is Benali actief in het onderwijs. Als detective Appie nam hij basisscholieren in filmpjes mee langs de Schrijfgeheimen van de Schoolschrijvers. Voor middelbare scholieren stelde hij TXT een bloemlezing van verhalen samen en bezocht hij afgelopen najaar scholen tijdens Literatour, de boekenweek voor scholieren. Momenteel brengt hij de theatervoorstelling Kalief in Nederland.”
