Alain Arias-Misson

° 1936

Born in Brussels (BE), lives in Madrid (ES).

Alain Arias-Misson (1936, Belgium, lives in Madrid) is influenced by the happenings of the early 1960s when he returns to Brussels from the US in 1968. He is seen as the inventor of the public poem, an extension of visual poetry but distinct from the happening in that it is performed outside of any artistic or aesthetic context: in the streets or on the beach. Arias-Misson’s public poems are both subversive and liberating, both provocative and playful.
