Wordscape is a multi-faceted composition adding new dimensions to recited poetry. Conceived as an audio-visual installation, it explored the diversity in the regional languages from South Asia and Germany.
The work is part of “Poets Translating Poets” a two-year-long project initiated in July 2015 by the Goethe-Institut Mumbai, in collaboration with Literaturwerkstatt Berlin and in Cooperation with Deutsche UNESCO, with an aim to create a platform for poets from South Asia and Germany to translate each other’s works. By bringing together 51 poets including 17 German poets from across 20 languages through literary encounters in several South Asian locations, this project promises to stimulate new literary networks and open new avenues for transcultural understanding.
