24th poesiefestival berlin: no one is an island

The 24th edition of the poesiefestival berlin will take place from June 09 to June 16, 2023 at the Academy of Arts on the Hanseatenweg. With this year’s theme of “no one is an island” the festival will present a wide spectrum of international contemporary poetry.

Far from being “niche,” poetry represents one of today’s most interesting and experimental art forms – one that touches thousands of people around the world through its versatility, diversity, and precision. After two years of pandemic restrictions, the 24th poesiefestival berlin will take a panoramic view of the art of language. Organized by the Haus für Poesie, the poesiefestival will expand the social relevance of poetry in readings, performances, discussions, exhibitions, workshops, and artistic interventions – revealing connections and affinities between poetry and music, sound art, visual art, film, dance, theater, and digital media.

The poesiefestival berlin is a project by the Haus für Poesie.
