In a letter to Bettina Funcke, dOCUMENTA (13)’s Head of Publications, New York–based poet Kenneth Goldsmith (*1961) weaves the strands of his artistic practice into an overall picture of his work. He begins with the online archive UbuWeb, which he founded in 1996: a noncommercial platform where he collects and presents material from all areas of avant-garde artistic production (poetry, film, video, sound, etc. The descriptions of his work on UbuWeb, as a writer (who retypes existing texts), as a host of a weekly radio show (who reads out other DJs’ set lists and texts from blogs), and as a professor of English literature (who teaches “uncreative writing”), together with theoretical and poetic inserts, condense to a complex reflection about poetry under the influence of appropriation.
