Haus für Poesie
Since its foundation in 1991, the Haus für Poesie, formerly the Literaturwerkstatt Berlin, has been promoting and supporting all areas of literature, but especially poetry, both as the written word and in conjunction with other art forms and media. Its work has focused exclusively on poetry since 2000. It is the venue where contemporary poetry in all its diversity of forms is showcased and discussed.
The Haus für Poesie runs a number of projects, including lyrkline.org, worldwide largest multilingual database of poets, poems and poetry reading recordings, Poesiefestival Berlin and Zebra Poetry Film Festival, the largest of its kind in the world.
