Dancing between fiction, essays, scripts and poetry, leaping between the Netherlands, Berlin and the forest of Białowieża, you might just encounter Dirk Vis around the corner. Whether it be our sexual connections to others or the lustful affinity we feel with artistic creativity, these revelations of human relationships are central to Dirk’s sincere writing. Generating chapbooks, performances, websites, ebooks and more, his multimedia approach allows us to intimately confide in him, to dive into his thoughts until they become tenderly familiar. With a thirst to spark new conversations on sex and sexuality, his novel Paren of de kunst van de slaapkamer (2022) as well as his short story in Extra Extra no. 20 ‘Give〰Take’ seeks new vocabularies for the aspects of sexuality we may struggle to fluently express on our own.
