On 15th November, 2012, PAVILION center held a lecture by Razvan Tupa, under the title Reshaping power and other problems of poetry today.
In front of a church in 2012, some beggar children touch the passers by and “greet” them in a certain way.
Poetry is perceived both as art and arabesque. Order, disorder and authority are three reports that were tracked starting and turning to poetry. Authority, domination, influence are aspects of power. These aspects formulate the rules for operating poetry and, also, the rules of different types of power.
Aristotle distinguishes between cry and voice as among those who are not part of the political community, and those who are included in this community. The “Greeting” of the beggar children makes the transition between the two conditions.
Razvan Tupa (1975) studied History of Religions and Culture and worked as a journalist.
He performs poetry in different places in Bucharest since 1996. He read poetry in Paris, Rome, Prague, New York, Tel Aviv and Berlin. His first collection of poetry was “Fetish” in 2001, awarded ex aequo the “Mihai Eminescu National Award” for first book of poetry. In 2011 he published “Poetic. The Sky in Delft and other Romanian bodies”, a second book of poetry. His poems were selected for “No Longer Poetry- New Romanian Poetry”, an anthology published in UK and “The Vanishing Point that Whistles- An Anthology of Contemporary Romanian Poetry” (Talisman House) in US.
