Transpoesie strikes back. And poet Szczepan KOPYT takes part in it!


Transpoesie is a poetic experience held in the metros, trams and buses of Brussels, giving every passenger the chance to discover the work of international artists, thus transforming his daily life into a new source of inspiration.

The poet we have invited to take part this year is Szczepan Kopyt. He will be in attendance at the LIVE ACT evening on 17 October.

>>> On Transpoesie

This year, the Polish Institute is once again joining forces with the Alliance Française de Bruxelles-Europe, the Balassi Institute, the Czech Centre, the Romanian Information Centre in Brussels and the Permanent Representation of Estonia to the European Union, which is representing EUNIC BRUSSELS.

After Ryszard Krynicki (in 2011) and Piotr Sommer (in 2012), we are proud to present one of the most promising young Polish poets: Szczepan KOPYT. You’ll be able to read his poem acab on the metro, bus and tram from 24 September until 21 October. Whether you’re a poetry lover or just keen to take a look, you can even take his poem home with you, as well as those of the other 24 European poets who are participating in the event, between 5 and 19 October, as you can ‘tear it off’ the insides of the capital’s buses and trams!
Przemysław Czapliński, a highly influential Polish literary critic, highlights the fact that, in his poetry, Kopyt is able to draw on "his ability to damage all forms of discourse and kick-start linguistic rebellion in every field of language”. Be sure to take a look at his work!
