Karl Holmqvist

Profile:
Born 1964 in Västerâs, Sweden. Lives and works in Berlin, mostly with text material, publications and readings.

Swedish artist Karl Holmqvist blends poetry and pop music through cut-ups based on the similar structuring of both forms of composition. His texts, composed of anecdotes as famous as they are diverse, seem to be streams of consciousness in which one can trace Gertrude Stein and Chicks on Speed, William Blake and the Rolling Stones.
