SAND 24 Launch Invitation

A midsummer night at Hallesches Haus to celebrate the launch of SAND 24!

Much of the art, poetry and prose of SAND 24 is about different ways of coming undone; in states of crisis, but also in dreams, alternative realities, and states of euphoria. Unravelling invites a return to and revision of the past, as borders between time, space, reality, and fantasy become slippery and permeable.

Join us at Hallesches Haus on June 23, 2022, to celebrate the release of SAND 24. Reserve your launch tickets here.
