aa-e Marseille : Presentation of the poetry book “Burmese Spring”
The agency of artists in exile in Marseille, that works to identify artists in exile from all origins and disciplines and accompanies them according to their situations and their needs, keeps developing with a new event.
Burmese spring presents 14 poets and 7 photographers from Myanmar and Rohingya ethnic group, in exile, imprisoned or killed by the army during the coup d’état in February 2021. Others are forced to hide their identity. Their works are testimonies of shock, anger and determination.
Héliotropismes is a Marseille-based publishing house that publishes literature from the margins and is interested in the social memories that gravitate to the periphery.
The event is organised by Mayco Naing and Isabelle Ha Eav.
