POETRY IN CONVERSATION: Agustín Fernández Mallo – This is how kings are born

2022-06-20, 6:15 PM

Agustín Fernández Mallo is a physicist, novelist and poet. He belongs to the “Nocilla” movement, which derives its name from Fernández Mallo’s trilogy of novels, a punk song, and a nougat cream. His poetry – described as “afterpop” or “zapping literature” – is at once hypnotic, enigmatic, and deeply unsettling.

Fernández Mallo will speak about his work with his translator, Timo Berger.

The event will be interpreted Spanish-to-German.
