Poetry Talk: Syrian poetry – an undiscovered treasure trove

Fri. 8 June 5 pm
Akademie der Künste, Hanseatenweg, Clubraum, Admission € 5 / 3

Nouri Jarah poet and journalist, Syria/UK  Moderated by Subhi Hadidi critic, Paris and Syria

Syrian poets such as Adonis, Muhammad al-Maghut and Nizar Qabbani are some of the major figures in Arabic poetry and have defined our image of it up to now. But Syrian poetry is nonetheless largely unknown in Germany. In this poetry talk, two poets from different generations will be talking to Subhi Hadidi, who knows the Arabic, and especially the Syrian, cultural scene well, and providing an insight into the poetry of their country. Each poet will be presenting a poem that they see as being important for Syrian poetry and relating its author to the Syrian literary scene as a whole. Using these as examples, they will be talking about what characterises Syrian poetry and tracing the developments that set each generation of poets apart from its predecessor, taking up earlier features and recasting them, and placing them in the context of world literature.

Film: End and Beginning - a Meeting with Wisława Szymborska

Fri. 8 June 10 pm
Akademie der Künste, Hanseatenweg, Kleines Parkett, Admission € 5 / 3

NL 2011, 55 min., in Polish with German subtitles
Introduced by Thomas Zandegiacomo Del Bel media scholar, Berlin

On 1 February this year, the Polish poet and Nobel laureate Wisława Szymborska died in Krakow. End and Beginning (Einde en Begin) is a portrait of this celebrated poet and a journey, at once melancholy and full of humour, through her work and through Polish history. Director John Albert Jansen visited the publicity-shy poet at home and met an uncomplicated and mischievous lady with a great sense of humour.
The screening will be followed by a discussion in which director John Albert Jansen will be talking about the shooting of the film and working with Wisława Szymborska.
