From Wednesday 4 September until Sunday 15 September, the International Literature Festival in Berlin will take place. During the book presentation of Alles ist! Alles ist! Alles ist nur was es ist! on Thursday 12 September, Dutch poets René Huigen, Erik Lindner and Hélène Gelèns will recite a piece of their own work.
Alles ist! Alles ist! Alles ist nur was es ist! will be presented as the final result of the ‘poets translating poets’ project by Kunststifting NRW. The contributions by René Huigen, Erik Lindner and Hélène Gelèns were made at the invitation of the Dutch Foundation for Literature. For the NRW project, nine poets from three countries (The Netherlands, Germany and Poland) translated poetry in collaboration with professional translators Pauline de Bok, Gregor Seferens en Grzegorz Zygadlo.
