Presenter: Jerónimo Pizarro (Universidad de los Andes)
Não é isto um livro/ No es esto un libro collects several of the poems that the Portuguese poet and scholar Patrícia Lino published, performed, and exhibited across five different countries. Published in Colombia in 2020, this anthology and bilingual edition was edited by Ediciones Vestigio and was translated by Jerónimo Pizarro, an expert in Portuguese literature and Professor at Universidad de los Andes. According to the Portuguese critic and literature scholar Pedro Eiras, Patrícia Lino creates new languages. Besides her interdisciplinary work, in which she combines various forms of expressions and media — from videopoetry, music, to performance —, Lino is also the author of poetry that contends with satirical, political, philosophical, and empathetic themes. Her poems are the result of an attentive look at society and at the literary canon and the necessity of questioning, rebuilding, and undoing language.
The event will be held in both Portuguese and Spanish.
