POETRY IN CONVERSATION: Mihret Kebede – Intimate exile

2022-06-18, 5:00 PM

Mihret Kebede is not only a poet, performer, and visual artist – she also organizes festivals and co-founded Tobiya Poetic Jazz, the artist collective Netsa Art Village, and the video art festival Addis. Her poetry is marked by multidirectional thought and action, transcending the limits of what is individually said in a grippingly political way.

Kebede will talk to Rike Scheffler about her work.

The event will be interpreted English-to-German.
