Hafen Lesung #7, mit: Ghayath Almadhoun, Alexander Filyuta, Hugh James + Lou Moriarty, Martin Glaz Serup, Alistair Noon, Monika Rinck, Lea Schneider, Tessa Scott, Tilmann Severin. Hafen Lesung was honoured to feature Monika Rinck, one of the most important German poets of the last decade. Author of poetry, essays and numerous translations, she keeps the ongoing Begriffstudio project, an expanding file of word findings where various media and languages cross and link. We were also overjoyed to invite from overseas the Exil-poet Ghayath Almadhoun, from Palestine-Sweden. Currently based in Stockholm, he came to the Hafen Lesung after a successful series of participations in international poetry festivals, the latest, in Amsterdam and Berlin. Die Lesungen mit Übersetzung waren auf Arabisch, Dänisch, Deutsch, Englisch, Russisch.
