Narrating Exile: Volha Hapeyeva

Reading and discussion

As part of the series “Writing about Exile,” in cooperation with the Körber-Stiftung

Volha Hapeyeva is one of Belarus’ most famous poets and has lived in Germany since 2020. Her work engages with the subjects of origin, homeland, identity, and the loss of her own language. Calling herself a nomad, Hapeyeva wanders in her poetry between languages, countries, periods, and planets.

In conversation with the journalist Nadine Kreuzahler, Volha Hapeyeva will speak about her works and read from her recent volume of poetry Trapezherz, published in 2023.

Location: Werkstatt Exilmuseum
Fasanenstraße 24, 10719 Berlin
