Poetry & Film: statement by Uljana Wolf

Posted in Poetry Film, Uljana Wolf by lyrikline on 21. March 2012

Like a translation, and like poetry itself, or perhaps like prose poetry, or the prose poem—already we see the problem here—a poetry film exists in a between-space, a Zwischenraum. It can not be named. It can only be invented with each attempt; its inability to occupy a name or a space or a genre is what generates these attempts to create something that is true to its name. It will fail every time.

Uljana Wolf (born 1979) is a German poet. She lives in Berlin and New York and was a member of both the programme commission and the festival jury of the ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival. partner meeting @ poesiefestival berlin 2011

The 12th poesiefestival berlin from 17 to 24 June 2011 will be exploring landscapes of words, sounds and music. On June 19, the international partners of the lyrikline network will come together to exchange experiences and to focus on the next steps of development.
