„In the forefront of our move toward change, there is only our poetry to hint at possibility made real“ – Audre Lorde.
Poesie ist kein Luxus brings together three young Swiss literary activists bent on transforming silence into words, actions and poems.
The authors share an approach informed by queer and / or postcolonial perspectives, each evolving their own vivid textuality in novels or poems that tell of nascent sexualities, shifting genders, surging desires. The chords generated by this writers’ ensemble make gender / class / race determinism obsolete, replacing them with notes that ring free, welcoming improvisation and casting all decorum aside.
