Antoine Boute is a Belgian writer and sound poet born in Brussels in 1978. He currently lives in Tervuren (Belgium), almost in the forest. He explores the impacts between body, language and voice according to various media and means (paper, internet, stage) and enjoys collaborating with other authors and artists (Ariane Bart, Lucille Calmel, Mylène Lauzon, Charles Pennequin, Bertrand Laverdure, Sebastien Biset, Sebastien Lacomblez, Jean DL, Mauro Pawlowski, Agnès Palier…). He has participated in the Black Army since its beginnings in 2007. Its practice is fundamentally based on language, its limits and its diversions. His work is a constantly reformulated, absurd, disturbing and amusing game, to which he invites anyone who wishes to participate.
“Beneath its deceptively crazy airs, his work is in fact a fine part of cheerful knowledge, where the experimental, both magnified and mocked, experiences unexpected developments, where the mechanics of the zany duplicate another mechanism, which we dare qualify as schizo-analytical,” writes Christophe Claro.

Reading of the Manuel de Civilité Biohardcore by Antoine Boute, Stéphane de Groef and Adrien Herda
Inventing an aesthetic-political arrangement that shatters literature with drums and that cuts text and image to the point of producing an economy of the sign that exceeds its own economic level, Manuel de Civilité Biohardcore releases an anti-pedagogy of the wildness that plants flowers and fields of nettles upon chaos. Co-edited by the publisher FRMK (whose fabulous editorial, inventive, poetic and incendiary line we salute once again) and by Tusitala, the incredible trans-graphic work concocted by Antoine Boute, Stéphane de Groef and Adrien Herda launches a war machine against a world slumped in the high tech apocalypse.
