Uncontested Spaces: Guerilla Readings in the MoMA Galleries
As part of Kenneth Goldsmith's "Poet Laureate" program, he invites renowned writers to choose works in MoMA's collection, develop a response, and then select a space in the Museum galleries where they will perform the resulting readings and texts on Wednesdays. On selected Fridays, Goldsmith himself will contribute readings in the galleries. Visitors can meet the writers directly in their selected gallery.
Poets Kim Rosenfield and Robert Fitterman operate the Information Desk on the fourth floor. They welcome all questions—Museum-related and beyond—as they focus on the nature of information and the transference of knowledge. Fitterman uses search engines to assist in his answers, while Rosenfield utilizes the field of psychoanalysis to answer all questions.
