Reading 2: Poetry

( suomi ) ( español )

September 16th, 5:30pm 
Online Transmission from the Embassy of Spain in Helsinki.

Link: Microsoft Teams Meeting
Moderated by: José Luis Rico

In this conversation, poets will address territorial insertion and globalized aesthetics in the context of Spanish- and Portuguese-language poetry. Are the notions of avant-garde and canon still operational in today’s landscape? What is the future of traditional concepts like “meaning,” “beauty,” “sacred,” which have guided the understanding of poetry for so long?  What parricides and what resurrections are happening before our eyes? What are the best kept secrets of poetry in Spanish and Portuguese?
Featuring: Laura Erber (Brazil), David Gambarte (Spain/Fin) and Roxana Crisólogo(Per/Fin).
