Lection & Talk

Unfortunately, we have to inform you that Patrizia Cavalli can't be present today due to illness. The Poesiegespräch: Patrizia Cavalli | Giorgio Agamben is still taking place - Giorgio Agamben will talk to Cavalli's translator, Piero Salabè.

Piero Salabè (Italy) writer in conversation with Giorgio Agamben (Italy) philosopher

Patrizia Cavalli left the Umbrian provinces for Rome in the late 1960s. Under the wing of the writer Elsa Morante she developed her own voice, which set her very much apart from the hermetic currents of the time. On a sketch map of poetry, the philosopher Giorgio Agamben, who praises Cavalli’s work as “perhaps the most fluent and consistent” poetry of the 20th Century, accords her a special position. Her poems manage the miracle of opening up a space “where the primeval reptile poetry, that has survived its own extinction, grazes without a thought”.

 

Italian-German interpreting will be available for this event

Project leaders: Alexander Gumz | Matthias Kniep

Das Poetry Talk: Patrizia Cavalli – My Poems Will Not Change the World is presented with the kind support of the German Foreign Ministry, the Italian Culture Institute Berlin and ECHOO Konferenzdolmetschen.
