Reading and Writing Experimentally in the 21st Century: A Transatlantic Dialogue on Contemporary Poe
Amerikazentrum Hamburg - Hamburg
Amerikazentrum Hamburg


Poetry Reading and Discussion with Charles Bernstein, Ann Cotten, Marjorie Perloff and Heinz Ickstadt 


The highly renowned poet Charles Bernstein, who is one of the most influential contemporary American poets and was a founding figure of the so-called L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E  poetry movement, and the highly acclaimed young poet Ann Cotten, who is based in Berlin and has just released her much praised verse eposVerbannt! (Suhrkamp 2016), will read from and discuss some of their most recent poetic works. Afterwards they will enter into a discussion with two outstanding scholarly experts in the field of modern and contemporary poetry, Marjorie Perloff and Heinz Ickstadt.
The panelists will discuss recent developments in the field of contemporary experimental poetry written in the US, Germany, and beyond. Very basic questions that might serve as a promising starting point for the discussion are the following: What does poetry look like or how does poetry function nowadays, in the US and Germany? What does it mean to be a poet in the 21st century? 
Currently one can observe an increasing cultural interest in poetry, in the US and Germany. Poetic spoken word performances as well as innovative online and print publications are thriving. Poetry as a historically grown form of cultural expression appears to have incorporated the growing importance of digital media from early on. The increasing digitalization has sparked an impressive array of trans-genre and trans-media “hybrid” poetry. These are developments which the panel discussion will most definitely address. This event will not only foster the exchange across continents but also between different generations of poets. Moreover, the exchange between scholars and practitioners of poetry will offer unique perspectives on the subject matter.
This event is kindly sponsored by the U.S. Consulate General Hamburg.
