Ndriçim Ademaj: Poet from Prizren

By: Albina Makolli    September 26, 2013

Ndriçim Ademaj (*1991) lives in Geneva and released two volumes of poem in Kosovo: «Kërkoj diellin» (I am searching for the sun)(2008) and «Dera» (Door) (2011). He is rather unknown in the German speaking area of Switzerland. On the occasion of the double lection with Shaip Beqiri, Hans-Joachim Lanksch will translate Ademaj’s poems into German. His poems deal with the encounter and dialogue of two generations, which are artfully interpreted by Gian Töndury into German language. A conversation on literary scene, on life in Kosovo and in the diaspora will follow after the readings, which will be translated and moderated by Francesco Micieli and Hilmi Gashi. The evening will conclude with a solo performance by Jazz singer Elina Duni.

The double lection of Ndriçim Ademaj and Shaip Beqiri will take place in Bern (Switzerland) – Punto Buchowski, Thunstrasse 104 –, December 7th 2013, 21.00 – 22.30
