紫外線ファクトリだよ。call me a cab. 日本生まれのオタク。i do upskirt photography and yucky poetry. 普段はバカバカしいと上っ調子。i write too much and i can't stop biting my nails 'till they bleed. 殴り合いによって物語を話す。once when i was 5 i found a rotting fish carcas and named it Eggs.

do you ask yourself the same question? for that reason, we’ve collected 47 photos with answers from poets throughout europe in order to read, see, and understand its value. we want to present them in berlin in the exhibition: “what’s the point of poetry? / a european polyphony. on display.“
and here’s what happens…
47 poets from 47 european countries share their thoughts on the question “what’s the point of poetry?” in 47 photos. they’ve created slogans that comment on the state of culture and society in their countries while also keeping poetry in focus. this june at the berlin poetry festival (poesiefestival berlin), their very diverse poetic messages and points of view will be assembled in an exhibition. the photos are demonstrations and acts of solidarity at the same time. there has never been such an exhibition before. it offers the unique opportunity of bringing the variety of european voices and moods together in one place.
