POETRY IN CONVERSATION: Kim Yi-deum – Even my dictionary is bleeding

2022-06-22, 6:00 PM

Kim Yideum’s poetry is polyphonic, wild, and feminist, teeming with quirky personnel. With explicit eroticism, dirty sentences and a maximum of lyric energy, she exposes patriarchy’s crustiest structures – not only in Korea. Kim Yideum teaches in addition to writing, at the university, runs a bookstore and café in Seoul, and publishes her own publication series.

She will speak with her translator Simone Kornappel about her work.

The event will be interpreted Korean-to-German.
