The UNESCO World Poetry Day is the occasion to honour poets, revive oral traditions of poetry recitals and promote the reading, writing and teaching of poetry.

This year's performers on stage include: Syrian-Palestinian poet Ramy Al-Asheq, who now lives in Berlin. Athena Farrokhzad, born in Tehran, lives in Stockholm. She fuses lyrical, political and conceptual processes in her poetry. Schloss Wiepersdorf alumnus Endre Kukorelly performs the poetic balancing act between Hungary and Germany, Charlotte Warsen's texts sound "like good jazz," and Michael Stauffer, spoken word artist from Switzerland.

Wasser.Zeichen – Reading by GEDOK authors

Saturday, April 16, 2022, 3:00 pm
Castle Park Wiepersdorf

Fourteen authors from the Verband der Gemeinschaften der Künstlerinnen und Kunstfördernde GEDOK e.V. from all over Germany will come together in April for a group fellowship at Schloss Wiepersdorf to explore the theme of water from different perspectives.

Under the title Wasser.Zeichen (Water.Marks) they will work together on an anthology. The project Wasser.Zeichen opens up a broad range of content, from political implications, such as the global water economy, water scarcity or abundance, to scientific and historical, philosophical and, above all, artistic facets.

In the garden of Schloss Wiepersdorf, fourteen of the texts will be presented in excerpts of 5 minutes each as part of a picnic. Guests are asked to bring food if needed. The picnic will take place on the lawn in front of the castle. In case of bad weather, the reading will be moved to one of the interior rooms.
