Risteymä. Ecopoetics, equity and pandemia

Taiteellinen työ / siihen pohjautuva työ | Yksivuotinen

Poet, graphic designer and multimedia artist Daniel Malpica applies for a 1 year working grant to develop two main core projects: 1. Writing a series of conceptual, concrete and cross-discipline poetry attempting to explore non-conventional ways of creative writing while reflecting on the meaning and purpose of literary practices after Covid19. The series will try to constitute a fundamental analysis of the human activity on this planet (the perceptions of nature, Ecopoetics, environmental devastation and utopia). 2. A series of multi-platform projects intended to showcase, support, translate and publish linguistically diverse literature within the Finnish literary scene. Those projects will take the form of live streaming sessions involving Finland-based authors; and a multilingual book on freedom of speech involving a discussion on Finland’s xxi century literary corpus (as part of a wider project developed by Suomen PEN).
