Máighréad Medbh in Berlin Photo Exhibition: ‘What’s The Point of Poetry?’

Máighréad Medbh is one of 47 European poets who feature in  ‘What’s the Point of Poetry?’, a photographic exhibition that opened at the Akademie der Künste in Berlin today.

Initiated by Belarusian artist Sergey Shabohin, the exhibition explores the question ‘What’s the point of poetry?’ through the viewpoints of 47 poets from 47 European countries. The exhibition documents the ways in which the poets assess the state of culture and society in their countries, explores what poetry communicates, what messages and demands the poets involved have for their societies, and what the idea of ‘home’ means to each of them.

For more information on the exhibition, visit the Literaturwerkstatt Berlin website.
