Asta Nielsen, Danish filmstar, film director and film producer. She was the Muse of many artists in the 1910s and 1920s, including Paul van Ostaijen, who dedicated a poem to her in 'Occupied City' ('Bezette stad', 1921). We're showing a film in which she stars tomorrow in La Strada as part of our exhibition.

Ook Paul van Ostaijen ontbreekt niet op het Passa Porta Festival in Brussel. In het programma ‘Geen dode letter’ presenteren drie hedendaagse auteurs onbekend werk van drie illustere voorgangers aan de hand van archiefstukken die zelden te zien zijn. Schrijver en criticus Matthijs de Ridder, die voor zijn onderzoek al ettelijke uren doorbracht in de archieven van het Letterenhuis, is de geknipte presentator. Een vraag die hij onze drie bevoorrechte lezers Andy Fierens, Geert Buelens en Pascal Verbeken zal voorleggen: is het werk het afstoffen waard? Aanstaande zondag in de Muntpunt in Brussel. Info en tickets: https://www.passaporta.be/nl/magazine/geen-dode-letter-lezen-in-het-archief-van-jef-geeraerts-eriek-verpale-en-paul-van-ostaijen . #paulvanostaijen #paulvanostaijengenootschap #vlaamsepoezie #vlaamseliteratuur #moderniteit #avantgarde #bezettestad #feestenvanangstenpijn #occupiedcity #feastsoffearandagony #musichall #warpoetry #oorlogspoezie #dandy #passaporta #passaportafestival #passaporta2019 #passaportafestival2019 #jefgeeraerts #eriekverpale #geertbuelens #andyfierens #pascalverbeken #matthijsderidder #geendodeletter #letterenhuis #letterenhuisantwerpen #muntpunt @letterenhuis @passaporta

paul.van.ostaijen. The Cathedral of Our Lady in Antwerp is celebrating her 500th birthday

The Cathedral of Our Lady in Antwerp is celebrating her 500th birthday today. She is so iconic for the city of Antwerp that she is featured in many songs, paintings and poems. Van Ostaijen mentions the cathedral many times, albeit not always so specific. In the page from his infamous book ‘Bezette stad’ (Occupied city, 1921), she (and all cathedrals) represent the old world, the powers that are crumbling down under WWI. After the destruction that WWI was, what is left? Nihil? #onzelievevrouwekathedraal #antwerpen #antwerp #cathedralofourlady #bezettestad #occupiedcity #avantgarde #flemishliterature #flemishpoetry #nihilism #dadaism #dada #expressionism #expressionistart #expressionistpoetry #dadapoetry

90 years ago, Paul van Ostaijen died in a sanatorium of the consequences of lungtuberculosis. He was only 32 years old but left behind an impressive literary legacy. He died alone in a small village in the south of Belgium, far from his beloved city of Antwerp and far from his family and friends. He was buried there (and got reburied twice in Antwerp years later). The picture depicts his first grave with a wooden cross with the inscription: ‘Here lies the poet of The first book of Schmoll, Paul van Ostaijen’. That ‘The first book of Schmoll’ actually hadn’t been published at the time of his death. It would contain poetry that was very different from his former work, a practice in the ‘first seeing’. RIP Paul van Ostaijen. #paulvanostaijen #boekvanschmoll #bookofschmoll #flemishpoetry #bezettestad #modernpoetry #avantgardeart

paul.van.ostaijen. Fragment of the poem ‘Angst een dans’ (agony a dance) from Van Ostaije

Fragment of the poem ‘Angst een dans’ (agony a dance) from Van Ostaijen’s manuscript ‘Feasts of fear and agony’ (1921). The manuscript never got published during his lifetime. It is considered to be the mirror book of ‘Bezette stad’ (Occupied City, 1921). Though far more introspective it breathes the same air of nihilism and idealism, hedonism and fear, mysticism and the profane. The book was written in 4 colors, based on Kandinsky’s color theories. He gave it to Oscar Jespers for publication in the same style as Occupied city. @kandinskywassily #oscarjespers #bezettestad #occupiedcity #feestenvanangstenpijn #feastsoffearandagony #avantgarde #expressionism #cubism #dada #dadaism #typography

When Van Ostaijen and his girlfriend Emma went into exile in Berlin in 1918, they first lived in the Wilhelmstrasse. That's where the November Revolution took place, right before their eyes. Van Ostaijen, seeing the results of the revolution he had wanted in Flanders, now saw the possible ugly outcomes and got depressed. He then wrote Bezette Stad (Occupied City) and Feesten van angst en pijn (Feasts of fear and agony), his most famous works. #expressionism #dadapoetry #dada #paulvanostaijen #bezettestad #feestenvanangstenpijn #expressionism #expressionistpoetry #novemberrevolution

This is graphic designer Jos. Léonard ca. 1911. He and Paul van Ostaijen met in primary school and were close friends throughout their student years. Léonard made drawings for each poem in 'Music-Hall' (1916), the debut poetry book of Paul van Ostaijen. The latter rejected them all but one, because they were too old-fashioned and art nouveau instead of expressionist. We've found a book with all the rejected drawings that we'll exhibit this weekend in the expo '100 jaar Music-Hall van Paul van Ostaijen'.

Asta Nielsen, film star of the 1910s and 1920s conquered many cinema's and hearts. Van Ostaijen's was one them. He referred to her quite often in 'Occupied City' ('Bezette stad', 1921). Here is a page in which he calls her Our Lady of Denmark in a genius set-up in which religion and the profane, high-brow culture and so called low-brow culture clash. Tomorrow we broadcast one of her movies in La Strada as part of our exhibition.

Paul van Ostaijen, his first love Marguerite Van der Veken, and the expressionist/cubist painter Floris Jespers in Jespers' atelier in 1917. Van Ostaijen dedicated a whole chapter in his first poetry book 'Music-Hall' to Marguerite whom he called 'The Princess of Ji-Ji'. Alas, love did not last, but we are pleased to present a lot of photo's from her at our upcoming exhibition!

(Swipe for English translation) ‘Ostaijen décédé prière prévenir famille’ (Ostaijen dead please notify family) This was the telegram that dr. Bérard from the sanatorium - where Van Ostaijen got treated for his tuberculosis - sent to his colleague dr. Peetermans, Van Ostaijens MD, today 91 years ago. It announced the death of one of the most important poets from Flanders. His debut ‘Music-hall’ (1916) was the first modern poetry book in Flanders. His poetry books ‘Bezette stad’ (1921, ‘Occupied city’) and ‘De feesten van angst en pijn’ (1921, ‘Feasts of fear and agony’) still captivate readers almost a century after they appeared. With this poem, we pay him hommage. . . #paulvanostaijen #paulvanostaijengenootschap #vlaamsepoezie #vlaamseliteratuur #moderniteit #avantgarde #bezettestad #feestenvanangstenpijn #occupiedcity #feastsoffearandagony #musichall #warpoetry #oorlogspoezie #dandy
