POETRY IN CONVERSATION: Julia Wong Kcomt - In Peru, no one looks like anyone

Event-Picture: POETRY IN CONVERSATION: Julia Wong Kcomt - In Peru, no one looks like anyone

Lection & Talk

With Julia Wong Kcomt, author Peru and Rike Bolte, author and translator Germany

Julia Wong Kcomt hails from a Chinese-Peruvian family and lives in Lima and Lisbon. The diasporic experience is formative for her texts, which move between Brazilian and Argentine poetry. Critics have praised her poems’ evocative tone, calling them “enigmatically sensual invitations to hypervigilance” (Brandon Shimoda). Julia Wong Kcomt will speak to her translator Rike Bolte about her work.

The event will be interpreted Spanish-to-German.

Project leaders: Alexander Gumz, Matthias Kniep

The event is part of the poesiefestival berlin: poesiefestival.org

The poesiefestival berlin is a project of the Haus für Poesie in cooperation with the Akademie der Künste, with support from the Hauptstadtkulturfonds.
