Some of the most interesting projects in the German-speaking poetry scene have prepared Pecha Kucha presentations, a way of presentation from Japan which has achieved cult status. 20 images, each comprising 20 seconds of compressed speech, demand not only clarity of presentation, but also concentration on what is essential. The event offers poetry a performative marketplace, setting free surprising parameters for its effectiveness.
