This year's reVERSible translation workshop will feature poetry from four successor states of the former Yugoslavia: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, and Serbia. Four cultural institutions from the four countries are gathering to make such an encounter possible.
Eight poets from the “common” linguistic space will meet eight German-speaking poets and translate one another's poems for three days. On this evening, the 16 poets will present the results of their poetic collaborations.
Reading and conversation in Bosnian, Croatian, Montenegrin, Serbian and German.
The idea for this reVERSible came from Olivera Stošić Rakić, whom we thank very much.
