Aube Alba Tageslied features :
Tursday 18th of July, in Berlin’s Altes Finanzamt, the tiny poem-film will be projected as part of the book-launching evening and exhibition LANGUAGE IS AN INVISIBLE LANDSCAPE.
“Spiel im Morgengrauen”, is a book by Arthur Schnitzler that tells the story of a gambler.
With this book, began our reflection about a “Morgengrauen”, a grey morning, placed side by side with mist and desire for the return of a portuguese king, with the icelandic bloody morning.
In other words, the focus of our thoughts was to confront the concept of “Dawn” with its own meaning in different Languages. Addressing it through various perspectives, from the most sociological, cultural and historical dimension of language, until the emotional one.
The book collects a variety of thoughts, translated over different medias, an imaginarium that doesn’t aim to be more than this.
A collective reflection with no borders, methodologies or systems, made by:
Yasmim Assade, Freja Bäckman, Jóhannes Benediktsson, Emilie Bernard, Hyeisoo Kim, Gaelle Kreens, Catarina Laranjeiro, Marta Leite, Barbara Marcel, Dídio Pestana, Eirik Sordal, Benedikt Terwiel, Marco Ugolini, Francisca Villela, Mário Gomes & Elisa Balmaceda, Mariana Caló & Francisco Queimadela and with an Interview with Gudbergur Bergsson.

The artist and friend Marta Leite invited some of us to participate and reflect with her on the possible meanings of words to say “dawn” in different cultures, what they reveal about these last ones and how they might shape collective thinking.
Marta Leite is presently working with Portugese, German and Icelandic.
She asked us to propose our own contribution to a publication and presented the first works as well as her researches while in residence in Reykjavik, in a collective exhibition there on the 26th of February 2013.
The book, Language Is An Invisible Landscape, will be published this summer 2013. An exhibition in Berlin will follow.
My contribution, a 1mn10 poem-film, is an Alba, in the Middle-Age troubadour tradition.
