Migration, climate crisis, Brexit, Aleppo, terror, Trump. What to do? What can we do? Are we feeling powerless, paralyzed?
Does a feeling of powerlessness turn into apathy or activism? And is the function of poetry to assess the apathy - or is it a call to activistic intervention? Does poetry have a function? This year, REVERSE will present poets and artists that work in the tension between apathy and activism, between pathos and politics, and between past and identity - as well as artistic communities that work to mobilize collective action.
The theme for REVERSE 2017 is "Don't mourn - organize".
Welcome to four days with readings, debates, audiovisual and interactive art installations, performances and concerts.
Mark the dates: 31.08 - 03.09.
