Reading Balkans Sarajevo 2021: Adelina Tërshani

BHSC

Gošća rezidencijalnog progama za pisce i spisateljice Reading Balkans 2021 u periodu mjeseca jula je feministička aktivistkinja i izvođačica slam poezije sa Kosova, Adelina Tërshani.

Adelina Tërshani je feministička aktivistkinja i izvođačica slam poezije koja živi na Kosovu. Diplomirala je na Filološkom fakultetu, Odsjek za novinarstvo, na Univerzitetu “Hasan Prishtina”, a sada radi za Žensku mrežu Kosova. Adelina je poznata po svom kritičkom i feminističkom duhu, a kritika patrijarhalnog mentaliteta preovladavajuća je tema njezinih djela. Svoj izričaj pronašla je u formi slam poezije, što je dovelo do učešća u drugom izdanju kosovske slamske poezije (KSP), u kojoj je interpretirala svoju pesmu “Enough”, koja osuđuje seksualno uznemiravanje prema ženama. U trećem izdanju KSP-a vratila se kao mentor pomažući takmičarima u pisanju slam poezije. „Logjikë Patriarkati“ (“Patrijarhalna logika”) je njena najpoznatija pjesma, izvedena posijle marša 8. marta 2017. godine u Prištini na Kosovu. „Nuk tutna ma” (“Ne plaši se više”) je još jedna slam poema s kojom je učestvovala na najvećem feminističkom festivalu na Balkanu – Femart. Nedavno je objavila pjesme: “Shtylla e shpis” (“Stup kuće”), osnažujući djevojke da zatraže njihovo nasljedstvo imovine, te „Patrijarhalna trauma”, koja odražava njeno iskustvo sa potrebom tradicionalnog društva za prisustvom muškaraca u porodičnom domaćinstvu. Adelina se 2019. vratila na KSP kao član žirija takmičenja. Njene pjesme prevedene su na nekoliko jezika, među kojima su makedonski, srpski, njemački i engleski.

Književna večer s Adelinom Tershani održat će se krajem jula, a detalji o mjestu i vremenu održavanja bit će objavljeni u dogledno vrijeme.

Projekat Reading Balkans: Borders vs. Frontiers je nastavak projekta Reading Balkans koji je bio podržan od strane programa Kreativna Evropa 2017. Ovog puta fokus je na temi granica i saradnji sa piscima izbjeglicama – u vrijeme kada stare rane iz balkanskih ratova još nisu zacijeljene, pitanja naših granica još nisu riješena, a nove politike straha i nacionalizma se grade kada izbjeglice prolaze kroz naš region – kroz naše aktivnosti želimo da radimo na dijalogu, debati i dubljem razumijevanju naših stvarnih problema. Boravak Adeline Tërshani u Sarajevu podržan je od strane programa Kreativna Evropa i Evropske mreže za književnost Traduki.

The project Reading Balkans: Borders vs. Frontiers is a continuation of the project Reading Balkans that was supported by Creative Europe in 2017. This time we have put in the focus topics of borders and cooperation with refugee writers – at the time when old wounds from Balkan Wars have not yet been healed, the question of our borders still not solved, new politics of fear and nationalism is built when refugees are crossing our region (and actual border walls are built as well) – through our activities we want to work on dialogue, debate and deeper understanding of our actual problems. Adelina Tërshani’s stay in Sarajevo is supported by The Creative Europe Programme and the European network for literature Traduki.
