Can poetry be used to fight for good? Or is it not enough if it is limited to the beautiful? Social criticism and lyric poetry find each other not only on the textual level but also in spaces outside the literary sphere. More and more poets also intervene directly in processes of political negotiation by poetic means. Under what conditions can poetic activism succeed and contribute to a better coexistence? Five artists present their projects by being interviewed by Sandra Hetzl. Everyone is sitting in their cabins, but the ideas still blow the ship forward.
The event is for free, but you can donate to support poesiefestival here.
