Opening your mouth means getting involved. Spoken Word is poetic, performative, political, socially engaged and artistically diverse. Over the course of two separate evenings, ten national and international poets will present their poetic work. The invited authors have written texts that bear witness to experiences of exclusion and discrimination, the struggle for sexual freedom, self-determination and climate catastrophe – or simply the search for closeness and love. Whether spoken, sung or rapped – those who speak here speak for themselves, but also for and with others. Begging the question: How can we listen to each other, learn from each other and imagine living and writing together?


Moderation: Julian Heun

All authors are performing in their source languages. German translations are available.
