Poet in the City presents an evening of new perspectives on poetry.

Featuring acclaimed German poet Ulrike Sandig, this is poetry experienced through the senses. Sandig’s poems have inspired stunning artistic responses in both film and sound art, creating a new perspective on language and its possibilities. Here, she is joined in conversation by the artist Sebastian Reuter and her UK translator Karen Leeder.

Expect live poetry, film projections and the premiere of brand new sound art, created by Ulrike Sandig and Sebastian Reuter especially for this event. Perspectives on Poetry will take translation to new levels, and provide fascinating insights into the relationship between poetry and the imagination.

Ulrike Almut Sandig was born in Großenhain (GDR) in 1979 and now lives in Berlin. She started publishing her poetry by pasting poems onto lamp posts in Leipzig and spreading them on flyers and free post cards. After completing her Magister in Religious Studies and Modern Indology, she subsequently graduated from the German Creative Writing Program Leipzig. A prose book and three volumes of her poetry have been published to date. Previous publications include radio plays and audio-books of poetry and pop music.

This event is FREE to attend, but places should be reserved via the link on the right hand side.
