the berlin poetry festival needs your help to realize this project:
“what’s the point of poetry?”
do you ask yourself the same question? for that reason, we’ve collected 47 photos with answers from poets throughout europe in order to read, see, and understand its value. we want to present them in berlin in the exhibition: “what’s the point of poetry? / a european polyphony. on display.“
and here’s what happens…
47 poets from 47 european countries share their thoughts on the question “what’s the point of poetry?” in 47 photos. they’ve created slogans that comment on the state of culture and society in their countries while also keeping poetry in focus. this june at the berlin poetry festival (poesiefestival berlin), their very diverse poetic messages and points of view will be assembled in an exhibition. the photos are demonstrations and acts of solidarity at the same time. there has never been such an exhibition before. it offers the unique opportunity of bringing the variety of european voices and moods together in one place.

I adore this color
Please tell me where this is from!
In which President Obama gives the commencement address at Morehouse College, a historically African-American school in Atlanta, and gives a shout-out to gay graduates. He told the all-male graduating class: ”Keep setting an example for what it means to be a man. Be the best husband to your wife, or your boyfriend, or your partner. Be the best father you can be to your children. Because nothing is more important.” He strayed a little from the script, but got the message across just fine. (via Buzzfeed)
