Poetic Responses to Gustav Klimt

Hay Festival 2018 , 

Renowned painter of the exquisite and other-worldly The Kiss, Gustav Klimt is the crowning jewel in Austria’s symbolist movement. Join Brandon, Dautch and Quraishi as they present their poetic answers to Klimt’s masterpieces, specially commissioned by Bradford Literature Festival. The poets will discuss how Klimt’s work inspired their own, as well as the social and artistic context in which the paintings were created. This one-of-a-kind event marries the contemporary with the historical to mark the centenary of Klimt’s death.
