Join us at FTHo for the launch of Daniella Valz Gen's Subversive Economies. Published by PSS
Daniella Valz Gen's first poetry chapbook inhabits language as a site of both agency and discomfort. The poems evaluate vulnerability, nostalgia and intimacy. In Subversive Economies, a displaced body, wrapped in funky sheets, confronts desires and longings as it harnesses the insights of its position.
The launch event will include a performative action by the artist. Food and drinks will also be served
Books will be available at a special launch price (cash only), or buy in advance with a pre-order ticket when you book your place.
