The second reading as part of CCA Berlin's literary project Displayed Words – in collaboration with the Bezirksamt Mitte and the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program – will take place on 26 March 2024 at 7 pm in the Bärenzwinger [bear kennel]. The reading brings together old and new works by Kinga Tóth and Rafael Moreno, both participants of Displayed Words.
Displayed Words is an experiment in thinking with language, text and poetry through digital and public formats. For its second edition, Displayed Words takes place at Bezirksamt Mitte, Rathaus Tiergarten from December 2023 to April 2024, where texts by different writers and artists are presented on a digital display panel on the balcony above the main entrance. 
From 1-29 February, Kinga Tóth’s poem “Durch Nadeln / Tűleveleken” was on view in both German and Hungarian together with Rafael Moreno’s English poem “Numbers”. In their own ways, both texts perform a constant negotiation between the body and the violence of the world, invoking the styles of religious psalm and stream of codes respectively to explore possibilities of refusal and countering desires. The evening will begin with a conversation between the authors and Lou Ferrand, a Paris-based curator and writer and Jeunes Commissaires Fellow of the CCA Berlin in 2023. The conversation will be held in English, followed by readings in various languages, accompanied by sound and music feat. Europe.

Born in Colombia in 1993, Rafael Moreno currently lives and works in Paris. In their work as an interdisciplinary artist, Rafael focuses on the notion of technology, in particular through the historical development of mechanical automation and communication technologies, and their political and social consequences today. They approach this question from a Colombian perspective to depict the geopolitical relations between the Global South, Europe and the United States, expressed in the form of historical power structures such as colonization, industrialization and globalization. As a method, Moreno proposes to delve into the interactions between literature, architecture and economics to understand the elaboration of such power structures and their infiltration and trivialization in popular culture. Through this, they intend to develop strategies of collective resistance and disobedience to be integrated today.
