Devised for The Prompt for Performa 09 in New York and the Transart Festival in Bolzano, poet and OULIPO member Ian Monk’s interrogative parlor game Prompts uses a deck of instructive cards to orchestrate interactions between participants around a variety of topics and behaviors. The direction of the interactions relies on the personality of those who deal and receive the cards.

Ian Monk (b. 1960) is a British writer, poet and translator based in Lille, France. He is also a member of the French writing and mathematics workshop, OULIPO (“Workshop of Potential Literature”), which has met since 1960 to develop constraints for generating text. He has translated numerous books, among them novels by Daniel Pennac and Georges Perec. He has published original works in French and English, including Family Archeology and Other Poems (2004), and Plouk Town (2007).

In the context of, On View, Worldwide, for the Month Of…, a project devised by Kunstverein NY, artists are invited to insert an image of their work onto the pages of corporate and drugstore calendars. These artifacts are pasted onto an existing calendar, layering the images by way of montage to decode the office calendar through accumulation rather than deconstruction.

As part of a network of programming throughout the city of Amsterdam on Sunday, Febraury 6th, On View, World Wide, for the Month Of… will be presented alongside new publications from Kunstverein sister organizations in Amsterdam (with Ginger&Piss #2) and Milan (with I’m On Your Side) and followed by a performance by Nils Bech.
