Publisher Note

The publication «Emmy Hennings / Sitara Abuzar Ghaznawi» brings together the first translations in English of poems and writing by Emmy Hennings (b. 1885, d. 1948) with the work of Zurich-based artist Sitara Abuzar Ghaznawi (b. 1995). Hennings, co-founder of Cabaret Voltaire, Zurich was a performer, artist, and writer whose work has received little visibility until relatively recently. Ghaznawi created frames and encounters for Hennings's writing through collages, sculptures, and new writing by members of her artistic community. The starting point is the exhibition «Emmy Hennings / Sitara Abuzar Ghaznawi», which was shown at the Cabaret Voltaire in 2020 and later in modified form at the Swiss Institute in New York.

With texts and contributions by: Sitara Abuzar Ghaznawi, Timur Akhmetov, Simon Castets, Olamiju Fajemisin, Emmy Hennings, Salome Hohl, Shamiran Istifan, Semuel Lala, Nils Amadeus Lange, Laura McLean-Ferris, Furqat Palvan-Zade, Sophia Rohwetter, Ser Serpas, Ian Wooldridge, Michael Zimmermann.
