In a dialogue between practice and theory, this year’s Colloquium will be asking in what directions poetry might develop in future. Approaches that have already been put into practice will be thought through to their logical conclusions, and new concepts will be sketched out – poetry for digital media, polylingual poetry and collective writing projects. The Colloquium will seek to provide a timely and fundamental explanation of how the production and reception of poetry can be conceived internationally in future. How will the audience, the poetry and the (self-) image of the poet change in these new contexts?
Interpreting will be available for the event.
