TRAUMA OG MODSTAND – A NORDIC POETRY FESTIVAL
In the fall of 2020 and the spring of 2021 meter, in close collaboration with poet Shadi Bazeghi as well as Lyrikvännen, Malmötxt and Oslo Internasjonale Poesi Festival, is organising a poetry festival that spreads across Copenhagen, Malmö and Oslo. With a poetry festival that takes place over time in three different Nordic countries we aspire to create a dialogue about poetry that deals with trauma and resistance. Through these events we want to create a framework in which poets, scholars and translators can explore poetic form as a consequence of traumatic experience more than as pure aesthetics and look at the relationship between traumatic experiences, aesthetic expression and 'traumatic form'. Supported by Nordisk Kulturfond. More info will follow.
