Second International Conference ATD: Variations
The programme of the Second International Conference on the work of Arkady Dragomoshchenko will be organised around the phenomenon of variation. What is variation for Dragomoshchenko’
The task of the conference ATD: Variations is to encourage a dialogue between poetry, metaphysics, philosophy of language and psychoanalysis. We deem it important to construct a hermeneutic perspective for understanding contemporary poetic practices, to develop a language of their description and to ponder the place of knowledge in today’s poetic space.
