POSVERSO is a biennial focused on the multiple practices of intersemiotic poetry, which is generated from Hotel DaDA Base de Arte Correo y Poesía Experimental, in the city of Junín, in the northwestern region of the Buenos Aires province, Argentina.

The term pós-verso comes from a theoretical development by the Brazilian poet Omar Khouri, who coined it to refer to the manifestations of Brazilian poetry starting in the 1970s, and especially to the groups centered around the magazines Navilouca, Pólen, Código and Artéria. According to Khouri's ideas, the poetry of the post-verso era, which does not exclude the practice of conventional verse, has the distinctive character of migrating from one medium to another, using various codes for its “transmutation” or intersemiotic translation. The POSVERSO BIENNIAL takes up this concept that underpins the existence of an expanded poetry, intensely marked by its hybrid and migrant nature, but seeks to take it to a new level of transgression. Today poetry is not a territory restricted to poets, verbal or experimental, but rather a fluctuating and dispersive zone in which creators move who, in an incessant and cumulative manner, promote intersignal overflows between different arts.

POSVERSO will be developed in four sections:

  • A main section, integrated by invited artists.
  • A decentralized section, consisting of the artists selected via the Open Call, whose proposals will be presented in the different venues associated with the Biennial.
  • A section in unconventional spaces, where proposals linked to the languages of action art, performance, interference, poetic action, urban intervention will be activated.
  • A section dedicated to electronic poetics, whose productions will be exhibited in a virtual exhibition, hosted on the Biennial's website.
