Nora Gomringer is one of Germany’s best known and loved contemporary poets. In the early 2000s she was a prominent voice in Germany’s young slam scene, and her background in performance continues to inform her work.
Her writing blurs the boundaries between performance and page poetry, as well as often intersecting with other art forms, from film to music and visual art. She’s won a number of awards for her writing, from the Jacob Grimm German Language Prize in 2011 to the prestigious Ingeborg Bachmann Award in 2015. Her most recent collection, Moden, appeared in 2018 and completed her ‘Trilogy of Surfaces and Invisibilities.’ (2019)
