Have a Poet for Lunch: Jocelyn Saidenberg

Hear Bay Area poet Jocelyn Saidenberg present work in dialogue with the exhibition “Show Me as I Want to Be Seen.” Many of the poets speaking in this bi-weekly series are rooted in the New Narrative tradition, an experimental writing movement and theory that evolved in San Francisco.

“Show Me as I Want to Be Seen” presents the work of groundbreaking French Jewish artist, Surrealist, and activist Claude Cahun (1894-1954) and her lifelong lover and collaborator Marcel Moore (1892-1972) in dialogue with ten contemporary artists to examine the complex and empowered representation of fluid identity.

Jocelyn Saidenberg is a Bay Area writer and performer, whose books include “Mortal City,” “Cusp,” “Negativity,” “Shipwreck,” and “Dead Letter.” Her most recent book is “kith & kin” (The Elephants, 2018). She is one of the editors of KRUPSKAYA Books and she teaches at University of California, Berkeley and San Quentin State Prison.
