POETRY IN CONVERSATION: Julia Wong Kcomt – In Peru, no one looks like anyone

2022-06-21, 5:00 PM

Julia Wong Kcomt hails from a Chinese-Peruvian family and lives in Lima and Lisbon. The diasporic experience is formative for her texts, which move between Brazilian and Argentine poetry. Critics have praised her poems’ evocative tone, calling them “enigmatically sensual invitations to hypervigilance” (Brandon Shimoda).

Julia Wong Kcomt will speak to her translator Rike Bolte about her work.

The event will be interpreted Spanish-to-German.
