Ursula Andkjær Olsen, author, Denmark, in conversation with Alexander Gumz, poet and event organiser, Berlin.
Ursula Andkjær Olsen’s texts operate across genres, stretch out a linguistic landscape between prose and verse, that extracts its beauty from the very fragility of those who speak within it. Olsen is interested at every level in the performative elements of poetry – for the voice of the poems, their musicality, their corporality. The poet Alexander Gumz will ask her about her diverse work.
