The Streams of Contemporary Poetry

22. August/Thursday/ 15:30

Ptuj City Gallery, Ptuj


Moderator: Aleš Šteger


Discussion with the festival curator,  experienced creator and organiser of literary events, on tendecies in contemporary poetry.

What does the landscape of European and world poetry look like today? How do the authors circulate and how new translations appear? How to make and keep poetry on the radar and what can festivals do to help? Robert Renk, a long-time creator and organizer of literary events and this year’s curator of the festival, will take us on a trip across the maps of contemporary poetry.
