Started as a zine in the 90’s, Ugly Duckling Presse has become an essential press for contemporary literature and art. Working independently from Brooklyn, NY, UDP publishes poetry, translation, experimental nonfiction, performance texts, books by artists, pamphlets, and many many more. Matvei Yankelevich in person, a poet and translator, one of the founders of UDP, will be with us to share his vision.
The presentation will be followed by readings by Christine Herzer and Cole Swensen, and you will find more surprises in the passage.
A selection of recent and old publications by UDP will be available for the occasion.
Co-organized with Alexandru Balgiu.
