POETS' CORNER MITTE
ZK/U BerlinSiemensstr. 27, 10551, Berlin, Germany
with Carla Cerda, Marius Goldhorn, Julia Nakotte, Dana Ranga and Johannes Rosenberg
Moderation: Elisa Weinkötz
In her famous essay Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction, Ursula K. Le Guin reflects on the narratives of collecting - by means of a container, such as a carrier bag, in which the individual elements lie non-hierarchically next to, above, and below one another, the connections are loose, and the possibilities for linking are manifold - like constellations that form, dissolve, and come together anew.
While the ZK/U is under construction, we ask about the coherence of things. What happens in the in-between, when no stone is left unturned. The Urban Stage is a smaller version of the roof terrace that will grace the ZK/U at the end of the renovation work. A few meters closer to the Cosmos, here we dare to look up at the starry sky and contemplate lyrical constellations.
The Poets' Corner reading series has been a traditional part of the poesiefestival berlin for over 15 years and is organized by the Haus für Poesie. Throughout the districts, Berlin poets and musicians enter into a dialogue with special places and make the poetry written and lived here tangible.
The event is sponsored by Neustart Kultur.
