Love poetry in the age of discontent

April 27, 5:30 - 7:00 pm
Quellenstrasse 51, Room : D-002 Tiered and hybrid

Jerzy Jarniewicz is a Polish poet, literary critic, translator and essayist. His latest poetry collection, Mondo Cane, won the 2022 Nike Award, the most prestigious distinction in Polish literature.

This event will focus on the role of Love Poetry in our age of discontent. Do love poems still have relevance? How has love poetry changed throughout the ages? Can it surpass and survive crippling binaries, patriarchy, colonialism, or AI?

In conversation with Borbála Faragó, the poet will offer his views on these issues and will also read from his poems. 

Reception to follow!
