Karl Larsson (b. 1977)

Karl Larsson is an artist, poet and editor. These diverse positions have coalesced in an artistic practice that can be described as both editorial and literary, but that differs from writing in a conventional sense in its focus on spatial experience, embodiment and activism.

As a poet Karl Larsson has published five books; Form/Force (OEI Editör 2007), Nightsong (OEI Editör 2009), Parrot (Paraguay Press 2010), Poetical Assumption (Torpedo / JvE 2012) and Consensus (the Room) (Paraguay Press 2012).
