The Bozar Expo in Brussels is doing what promises to be an amazing exhibition about the connection between the avant-garde and feminism during the 1970s. Click here for more information. In conjunction with that exhibition, Bozar is also putting out a small collection entitled “I Sit Like a Garbage God,” which contains avant-garde poetry written by feminist poets around the world during the same era.
It looks like this mini-expo and the catalog that is being published along with it will contain an awe-inspiring line-up of poets! Among them are the critically important Japanese poet Hiromi Itō, who will be appearing my English translations, and one of my absolutely favorite writers, the Korean poet Kim Hyesoon who will be appearing the translations of Don Mee Choi.
