Take Note of Poetry
The YouTube channel Ostatni Ludzie Renesansu (The Last People of the Renaissance) offers a subjective selection of the most interesting Polish poets. The playlist Visual Poetry. Polish Classics presents works by poets such as Czesław Miłosz, Stanisław Barańczak or Halina Poświatowska. Using the aesthetics of found footage and inspired by Internet phenomena such as glitch art, vaporwave, dank memes or YouTube poop, Natalia Komarow and Przemysław Wideł revive and reinterpret poems known from school. In their project Take Note of Poetry, the most important capital is the work of great poets, but value is also generated by the very fact of sharing contents via the Internet – this vast, self-replicating capital that could be freely used by all people.
