VERSO / mass: Formulae

We live in a world of formulae. Birth rates, earning power, life expectancy. The power load that the electricity network must sustain long enough for you to read this message. And mass: a formula for quantifying inertia.

VERSO / is the live incarnation of Versal, Amsterdam’s literary & arts journal. Every two months on the Mezrab stage, VERSO / presents local & visiting poets, writers, artists, filmmakers, researchers, and more around a central theme.

We are excited to welcome Karen Kao, author of The Dancing Girl and the Turtle, as guest editor of our April edition.
