Unfinished Histories Vol. II

Orsolya Kalász, Sean Bonney, Uljana Wolf

Vol. II of the multi-part exhibition project continues with the international poets Orsolya Kalász, Sean Bonney and Uljana Wolf - curated by Daniela Seel, poet and pubisher of the Berlin press kookbooks.

Orsolya Kalász (*1964 in Dunaújváros) lives and works as a poet and translator in Berlin. She already spent several years with her family in Germany when she was young, where German became her second language. Her own poems are written sometimes in Hungar¬ian and sometimes in German. Kalász‘s most recent collection is Das Eine (Brueterich 2016), which won the Peter Huchel Award in 2017.

Sean Bonney‘s recent books include Ghosts (Materials, 2017) and Letters Against the Firmament (Enitharmon, 2015). He has performed his work on demonstrations, at picket lines and in seminar rooms. Bonney is doing postdoctoral research at the FU, Berlin into how radical poets have responded to the aftermath of the financial crisis of 2008. He divides his time between London and Berlin.

The poet, translator and essay writer Uljana Wolf (*1979 in Berlin) has published four collections of her poetry, as well as numerous translations, most recently meine schönste lengevitch (kookbooks 2013). Wolf‘s work has been recognised with awards including the Erlangener Award for Poetry as Translation and the Adelbert von Chamisso Award. She lives in Berlin and New York, where she teaches seminars on poetry and translation.
