Rough Translation – Lectures & talks with Ukranian poets

Lab 1_Roughly speaking: war

Die Angewandte, Auditorium, Vordere Zollamtsstraße 7, 1030 Vienna
Literature / Talk Cooperation in German and Ukrainian (consecutive translation)

War, writes Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, is the allegorical name for an extreme form of untranslatability. Despite this, or precisely because of it, it is the attempt that counts; the ongoing attempt of translation, a translation that always remains unrealised. At the event, Ukrainian poets will read and discuss. They will be broadcast live from Ukraine and the event will be transmitted to the Auditorium of the Angewandte.

ROUGH TRANSLATION Lab 1_Roughly speaking: War takes place in two spaces. The space of Austrian normality and the space of the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine. Curated by Evgenia Lopata, the artistic director of the international poetry festival Meridian Czernowitz talks to the authors Andrij Ljubka, Iryna Tsilyk, Kateryna Kalytko and Taras Prochasko. Both the authors and Evgenia Lopata are still in Ukraine. They will be connected live to the auditorium of the Angewandte. The event will be translated into German consecutively by Anna Kolomiitseva. The German translation of the literary texts will be read by staff and students of the Institute for Language Arts.
