Alexander Jorgensen: "I am a writer and visual artist, an editor and publisher, an activist and an educator. My work appears in The Last Vispo Anthology: Visual Poetry 1998-2008, THE RETURN OF KRAL MAJALES: Prague’s International Literary Renaissance 1990-2010, and The Text Festivals: Language Art and Material Poetry. My work is intentionally speculative, reticent and intimate. It does not feign boldness, but rather demonstrates a vulnerability to which one arrives after engaging too much in the observation of violence. I am based in Iraqi Kurdistan."
