TUESDAY APRIL 5, 14.15, Auditorium D, Sydneshaugen skole, UiB

Emmanuel Reymond, «Receptions of Poetry: Contemporary circulation between France and Norway»

During the last 20 years, the most contemporary practises in French poetry have received an important echo in Norway, thanks to the development of the publishing system, the organisation of events, such as international festivals (particularly in Bergen), and an increasing, collective interest in what is happening in other linguistic areas at the same time. This lecture, just before the launching of Audiatur’s eight edition, will explore the relationship between French and Norwegian poetry today, its genealogy, the role of the actors involved (writers, translators, publishers), and the processes given as frames (digitalization, cultural funding).

(Arr: Department of Linguistic, Literary and Aesthetic Studies, University of Bergen)

* Crowd Speaking by Pavel Arsenev (five channels video installation):
«If communism in its written forms teaches us to trust one another, communism as a spoken form teaches us interdependence. In this video installation leftist literary figures share their perspectives on the contemporary situation of literature and exchange ideas about how it might be reconstructed in the future. The participants articulate their own positions, but with the voices of an other, often polemically disposed participant. This experiment in exchanging signs and organizing the spontaneous subjectivity of the utterance aims to show the extent to which positions within a culture are marked by a mutually divergent character and are organized on the basis of the internal politics of literature. But it also attempts to demonstrate the extent to which our views as a whole are indebted in their construction to the speech of the other.»
