Event Description : POETRY Reading by Ulrike Almut Sandig

The poems of Ulrike Almut Sandig are at once simple and fantastic, but also songlike and narrative.

The collection Dickicht (Thick of It), published in 2011 and translated into English in 2016, finds her on her way to imaginary territories and charts a journey through two hemispheres to “the center of the world” and navigates a “thicket” that is at once the world, the psyche, and language itself. By turn’s comic and ironic, skeptical and nostalgic, these poems are also profoundly musical, exploiting multiple meanings and stretching syntax, so that the audience is constantly kept guessing, surprised by the next turn in the line.

Ulrike Almut Sandig grew up in Saxony. She started publishing her poetry by pasting poems onto lamp posts in Leipzig and spreading them on flyers and free post cards. Two prose books, three pop music albums, radio pieces and four volumes of her poetry have been published to date. She often collaborates with filmmakers, composers, sound artists and musicians and has won many prizes, including the Leonce and Lena Prize in 2009 and the Literary Prize of the Federation of German Industries in 2017. She lives in Berlin with her family.
