Workshop led by Ricarda Vidal (Translation Games) in collaboration with Pavle Ninkovic
Translation Games is a research and exhibitions project into the wonderful world of translation within fine arts and literature. For this workshop, Translation Games has teamed up with Pavle Ninkovic who runs the interactive Serbo-Croatian Poetry Translation website.
The workshop will begin with a short presentation of Translation Games and its outputs, i.e. translations from flash fiction to film, from film to ceramics or choreography, from concrete poetry to scent etc.
We will discuss the fine line between translation, interpretation and response. What does translation mean within different contexts and how can we define language beyond the linguistic realm?
For the remainder of the workshop we will challenge you to translate a visual translation of a poem back into words. The original poem was written in Serbian and has been translated by artist Danka Dimitrijevic into the more international language of images.
No foreign languages are needed to participate in this workshop, but you'll have to enjoy the creative, imaginative and playful use of language – be it linguistic or artistic.
