VEILS FLYING UP
4. NOVEMBER - AT 1PM - 4PM
VEILS FLYING UP is an investigation into what the poet seeks to obtain when translating.
We have invited poets, who besides from writing their own poetry, works with translation. They will talk about their processes,translation strategies and the political potential hidden in the act of translating.
Furthermore, we will hear of their principles and programs, about displacements and which the meetings that occur. But also of the lack of words: What happens when the poet fall in between the languages in the space where neither one or the other can be achieved.
That the event takes place at Thorvaldsens Museum is not a coincident. Very few Danes have so often been celebrated in poetry as the Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen.
VEILS FLYING UP is a collaboration between Terrapolis and Thorvaldsens Museum.
Made possible with the support of Statens Kunstfond.
