dirc frölic (noidoitslant) Dirk Fröhlich (D) “Border : Key : Neuropa”

as an in a mining and industrial scenic deforestation area grown up voice-audio-visual artist said himself “only … rid of the time, a ghost under ghosts that come.”

Were known, partly  multiple, ground movements in the edges and intermediate areas of the different designated community here and there, in addition working visits oversea. He was also the editor of a now five continents connecting works on paper collection “spinne” (‘spider’) and of several other publications of a “buchlabor” (‘book lab’) and thus linked, stronger for german-speaking regions released works. In addition to the spatial directions and exhibitions executed by him he created occasionally sound events with mains-amplified stringed instruments. The core of all exercises would have been an awareness of the relativity of the human in the unsayable.

Secrets arround Radmeritz

RADOMIERZYCE (‘settlement of those of the peace-merry’ -  earliest known literally as Rademariz, june 2, 1249)
The land of Besunzans (‘those who are living near the elder shrubs’ – the name-giving place is now part of Görlitz (‘at the burned place’)) was cut several times following the violent german conquest since the tenth century under changing administrations and it was settled with people of different countries and languages, last in the result of the so-counted second world war in the twentieth century. The ‘settlement of those of the peace-merry’ which is located in this land appears after its name and the still weak recognizable quarter rundling shape of the fields nearby as a start-up with four or five homesteads from the early days of the now over a thousand years lasting occupation. Near the settlement the country was arbitrarly cut twice in the past two centuries in the results of predatory wars between different large administrations – soft viewed first north-south, east-west later. Beside the intersection of the divisions at the confluence of the rivers Neisse (‘lowland river’) and Witka (literally ‘sedge water’ – a contemporary sound imitation of a multilingual remodeled old waters name, earliest known recorded as Wetauia, 1352) a decade ago a hard mud bridge for heavy goods vehicular traffic, including footpaths on both sides, was allowed to build out of cash from a so-called occidental unit over the main stream and backwaters of the ‘lowland river’.

Dreißig die sinkenden Worte,
dreißig der fallende Schnee,
dreißig verschleierte Orte,
dreißig die offene See.

Fischer am Blütengestade,
Fahrer am Sturmbaume Gang,
Bauer steint Windbrücken – Gnade! –,
Putzer zieht Erdhimmel: lang.

Zittert die Erde in Kreisen,
singt ihre Sonne in Gang,
donnert in Sternen die leisen
Flugfedern, Nabel und Tang …

(Thirty the sinking words,
thirty the falling snow,
thirty veiled places,
thirty the open sea.

Fisherman on the shores of flowers,
driver on the path of storm tree,
builder stones wind bridges – mercy! -
cleaner pulls earth’s skies: long.

The earth trembles in circles,
sings her sun in motion
thunders in stars the quiet
flight feathers, navels and seaweed …)


OSTRITZ (‘near the edges’ – meaning the tops of the piles of a hill fort)
Opposite the due to emigration shrinking small town lies on the other riverside in the beginning of the floodplain of the ‘lowland river’ after the narrow valley the formerly fortified “Veensberg” or “Feensberg”, in standard german interpreted as “Venusberg” (‘ecstasy mountain’) – a grain storage facility, refuge and sanctuary of ‘those who are living near the elder shrubs’. This mountain gave the occasion of the palace building and lengthy ringing of the honorable women in the ‘valley of the resister’. The on that mountain honored, in the vernacular of the settlers “Flins” and under the strict prohibitions of the occupiers of the indigenous locals elsewhere only circuitous “Abgott” (‘idol’) called “Veles” (‘woolen’) is in the waxing and waning signs of the moon a guard of the horned cattle, of the seed of the living, of the souls of the dead, of trade, of sounds and songs, of the word artist ever. Below the sanctuary was recently in german time a footpath “Poetenweg” (‘way of the poets’, in the narrower sense ‘… language-creators’).

“Fluchtwege” (‘escape routes’) [51.016066,14.939122] – two identical, directed at each other, white plastic labels, green printed with a symbol and german word, bolted on wooden pedestrian and cycle traffic bridge planks:
