Literaire evenementen


Naast de vaste reeks aktiviteiten organiseert VLAM alleen

of in samenwerking met anderen ook andere literaire zaken.


6 okt: Lezing Susan Sontag door Benjamin Moser

No writer typified the American twentieth century like the mythologised and misunderstood, celebrated and lambasted Susan Sontag (1933-2004). No writer dealt with so many different worlds. Sontag wrote novels, diaries and essays about art and camp, porno and politics, feminism and homosexuality, fame and style, and fascism and communism. And no serious writer had so many exceptional lovers.

Benjamin Moser is the author of the official biography of Susan Sontag, Sontag: Her life and work. He tells the story of this intellectual, studying the work that gave rise to her reputation. Moser had exclusive access to Sontag’s private archives and interviewed hundreds of people all over the world, many of whom had never before spoken about Sontag, including her last partner, Annie Leibovitz.

Locatie en tijdstip: Auditorium Minderbroedersberg 4-6, 20.00 uur/ Toegang is gratis (aanmelden is wel gewenst i.v.m. de coronalimiet via website Studium Generale)


13 okt: Poetry night with Buddy Wakefield

Tonight, live poetry in all its amazing manifestations will hit the stage. Buddy Wakefield, the “most toured performance poet in history”, the one “who is not at all concerned with what poetry is or is not”, will deliver a raw, disarming performance of humour and heart. After his dazzling show, literary scholar Kila van der Starre will add a pinch of academia to tonight’s atmosphere by putting explication to the words. This will be alternated with exciting slam performances of the best poetry slammers in town.

Buddy Wakefield is a three-time world champion spoken word artist featured on the BBC, HBO’s Def Poetry Jam, ABC Radio National. He won the first Individual World Poetry Slam Finals in 2004. Wakefield is based in Los Angeles.

Kila van der Starre is writing her PhD thesis on poetry off the page, including Instagram poetry, poetry in obituary notices and street poetry.

Locatie en tijdstip: Muziekgieterij, 20.00-22.00 uur/ Toegang: € 5,-/ Reserveren via website Studium Generale is gewenst i.v.m. de coronalimiet.
