柏林诗歌节聚焦中国
 
 
        2015年第十六届柏林国际诗歌节邀请了六位中国诗人参加:臧棣、韩博、明迪、姜涛、吕约、王璞,同时也邀请了旅居柏林的两位中国诗人,共八位。诗歌节为时8天,有来自32个国家的140位诗人、艺术家和音乐家参与朗诵和表演,45家出版社到场,30多个国际诗歌节主席出席。619日的开幕式为世界声音·诗歌之夜9种不同语言的诗人来自东德、法国、俄国、美国、非洲等地,汉语诗人为臧棣,9位诗人的作品汇集为一本令人欣喜的诗册。
    诗歌节的特别项目聚焦中国,由诗歌节主席托马斯·沃法特与《诗歌在线》合作人明迪共同策划,德国青年诗人汉学家李雅·施耐德具体协调,主要活动有两场朗诵会和一场座谈会,录音棚录音,拍片,与柏林自由大学的汉学研究生交流,以及出版中德双语六人诗选。
         “聚焦中国在德国引起关注,媒体采访时明迪坦言:西方对中国的关注往往基于意识形态层面的差异和政治因素,对于中国诗歌内部发生的深刻变化不甚了解,这次我们6位诗人不代表任何阶级或者群体,只代表六种不同风格的个人声音,相信在抛开各种外在因素之后,诗歌具有其自身的艺术魅力。
         此次中国诗人的柏林行受到欢迎在于诗歌文本内容丰富,个人风格独特,臧棣的丛书系列和协会系列,姜涛对社会问题的反讽,明迪的图像诗和神话寓言故事, 吕约的口语诗和女性视角,韩博的语言创新,王璞对特定历史词语的反用和意义拓展,这些都使德国听众和来自其它国家的诗人对中国当代诗的丰富性、复杂性、多元性、与古典传统的共通性、以及自新能力有了更直观的了解。
