POEX 65 was a transdisciplinary event that took place in Copenhagen from 10-20 December 1965. Short for ’POetry EXperiment’, POEX 65 was an exhibition curated and created by Danish artist Knud Hvidberg (1948-1991). It aimed at breaking the boundaries of art genres, the division between the professional and the amateur, as well as the autonomy of the ‘work of art’ through the active use of technological and mediated platforms such as Flexowriters, Punch Paper Poetry, and Electronic Visual Music. More than 80 participants from 5 countries contributed with works spanning conceptual art, electronic music, modern jazz poetry, Fluxus, performance art, modern dance, concrete poetry and sound poetry.
