Saturday 13 April 2013, 6 – 8pm
Young, Fresh and Relevant Launch
an evening of performances and readings to celebrate the publication of:

Young, Fresh and Relevant
Issue 3
Edited by Chloe Stead and Rebecca Jagoe
Published by Vanity Verlag


Young, Fresh and Relevant is an open submission journal with the aim of carving a space for writing within the visual arts. Issue 3 features seventeen texts by seventeen artists, some of which have exhibited internationally and been widely published, others who are being published here for the first time.

“The whole thing was a stomach ache she’d been vaguely aware of all day. Now she felt her spine getting hard, that flexible column with its loose joints one above the other was turning into a broomstick. Her back was stiff as a poker but no more stable than a vertical paper fold.”

An ongoing interest into translation and bilingualism has lead the editors to accept entries in both the German and English language and subsequently to the inclusion of three German language texts two of which are available in English for the first time translated by Jen Calleja.

With readings/performances by:

Jen Calleja
Elena Colman
Emily Ilett
Rebecca Jagoe
Guthrie Mitton-Mckellar
Chloe Stead
Thea Smith
Ellen Wilkinson

Copies of YFR will be available on the night for the special launch price of £5 and a selection of German Schnapps will be served.
