Immutable, later: Ulrich Jesse K Baer + olivier


On the occasion of the book launch for Ulrich Jesse K Baer’s Deer Black Out, join us for a philosophical and ufological reading and trans-genre dialogue with Ulrich Jesse K Baer and artist olivier.

This is a hybrid event, which will be offered in-person and via livestream. The event name comes from a line in Deer Black Out.

Ulrich Jesse K Baer was born in Georgia and grew up beneath southern power plants. He has a science fiction chapbook At One End (Essay Press, 2020) and full-length poetry books Midwestern Infinity Doctrine (Apocalypse Party, 2021) and Deer Black Out (Red Hen Press, 2024). His book Beyond The Planet of the Vampires will be published by Clash in 2025. He has been included in journals such as FENCE, Baest, and The Tiny. He loves horses.

olivier is a research-based artist+writer and archives worker. They speak Cantonese at home with their demonic cat. Their practice is rooted in the ephemerality and anarchival in queer and trans theory and ufology. They toy with poetics and semiotics, caress languaging and linguistics, and draw with speculative projects, artists’ books, videos, performative lectures, happenings, and surveys… and lead a secret mail art practice. olivier holds an MA in visual and critical studies. Born and raised in British Hong Kong, they are now temporarily floating in the rivers of Chicago. For the past decade, their time machine has been stuck in this dimension. So it goes.
