Scope and Contents

The Sackners were invited to a televised conference for German TV in which the definitions of visual and concrete poetry were discussed in German that lasted hours with no definitive conclusions. The concluding respondent in the conference, Wolfgang Schmidt, gave a wink to the Sackners and replied to the question "What is Visual Poetry" with I...DON'T....KNOW! The event included an exhibition and poetic performances. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
