After stops at the Whitstable Biennale and the Ledbury Poetry Festival, “Home on the Move”, headed by CMCI’s Dr Ricarda Vidal, is coming to London for the summer.
As we reported here in June, this exhibition of European artist films, sound art and poetry in translation is the result of a journey undertaken by two poems about ‘home’.
The London series of events begins on 26 July 2018 with the exhibition opening and preview at the National Poetry Library (Royal Festival Hall (Level 5), Southbank Centre, London, from 19:30-21:30. Here, Ricarda and colleagues will present a short performative reading of the poems and their translations. This will also be an opportunity for the poets, artists and translators who took part in the project to meet each other and, of course, to meet the public. The event is free, but you do need to book: https://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/whats-on/130574-language-shift-launch-2018
Then on 27 July 2018, “Home, Belonging & Language: a day of exploring” takes place here at King’s College London from 9:00 – 18:00. This event combines group analytical methods with talks and presentations by their invited speakers as well as a practical workshop and an open forum Again, it’s free, but please book your ticket here: tinyurl.com/tixhbl.
