The U8 collective continues its actions on Tempelhofer Feld with Poesiegraf #2. For twelve hours Laurence ErmacoVa & Neïtah Janzing will write a circular poetic text score with chalks on the runways of Tempelhofer Feld. The kilometer-long linear text will be broken up by approximately 12 short lyrical texts at regular intervals. Each poem will be written by a poet especially for this event and at the invitation of the U8 collective.

The poems will be written in different languages. The U8 collective wants to give a concrete and poetic expression to the diversity and cultural variety of Berlin and at the same time point out that no single voice is able to reflect the complex and changing reality of the city.

The poetic texts offer suggestions for discussions, encounters and inspiration.

ROUTE: Park entrance Herrfurthstraße, runway along the red markings, to S-Bahn Tempelhof - via the other runway back to the starting point.
