U8 Kollektiv

The U8 Kollektiv is a Berlin-based poetry collective composed mainly of Laurence Ermacova and Neïtah Janzing. Referring to the U8 subway line that crosses Berlin from North to South, the collective seeks to enter into dialogue with the city through public actions, following the conviction that poetry has the power to transform places. The U8 Kollektiv invites authors of different languages to participate in their actions, thus reflecting the plurilingualism reality of Berlin. No single language is able to express the city in all its complexity and intimacy.
