Literary program of the forum “Transcending borders: GaliciaKult” in Kharkiv

Home / THE CULTURAL FORUM “Transcending Borders: GaliciaKult” in Kharkiv / Literary program of the forum “Transcending borders: GaliciaKult” in Kharkiv

Lyubov Yakymchuk

Poetess, journalist, kulturtreger. The author of the book “Donbas Apricots” and others. The initiator and organiser of a number of cultural projects, including “Semenko Year”, “100 years of futurism. Repairing of Shevchenko”,”Metro to Kybyntsi”.

In addition to famous literary works of Galicia the literary program highlighted the off-stream, less known phenomena, seemingly no related to literature. But if to think that literature operates not only in the form of printed texts, but also oral genre – in the form of stories about culture, transmitted from mouth to mouth, as, for example, urban legends and stories, everything falls into place. Thus, the literary program combines written and oral stories about Galicia – if to mean shape. As for content, on the one hand a series of popular lectures coveres the brightest literary-historical phenomena of Galicia, a Ukrainian language speaking and foreign language speaking, and a series of art events – from presentations to performances – presents modern literature of this part of Ukraine. This is not only urban but also rural and mountain Galicia. This program may seem to be too serious or too frivolous. This is deliberately.

We thank for support and assistance in the preparation of program:

Olena Galeta (Lviv), Tetyana Pylypchuk (Kharkiv), Marianna Kiyanovska (Lviv), Grygoriy Semenchuk (Lviv), Sergiy Zhadan (Kharkiv), Vasyl Makhno (New York), Yuriy Matevoschuk (Ternopil), Olena Maksymyak (Buchach) Anastasiya Levkova (Kyiv), Lukash Saturchak (Warsaw)

Olena Galeta

Lecture «Imaginary Galicia: Features of Literary Landscape»

Introductory lecture to the literary program

Imaginary Galicia arises from the reality of facts and quasi-reality of projects: from the letters of Austrian officers, who perceived Galicia as a real edge of the world; from the works of Polish, Jewish and Ukrainian writers who were born here; from the memoirs of travelers, soldiers and immigrants. Cities and towns, villages and family estates, military garrisons, forgotten cemeteries and railway stations are woven into a complex network of meanings, a quirky cultural product, prompting to answer the question: who goes to Galicia – where does he eventually come? Finally, what is imaginary Galicia today: a new world generated by the old texts or the new text generated by the old worlds?

Olena Galeta – literature and culture expert, Professor of the Ivan Franko Lviv National University and the Ukrainian

Catholic University. She taught and hauled studies at the universities of Poland, Croatia, Austria, Germany, Canada, USA and Australia. The author of the monograph “From anthology to ontology: anthology as a way of representing of Ukrainian Literature of late XIX – early XXI cent.” (2015), the head of the research and publishing project “History of Literature: can the history of Galician literature be possible?” (2010)

Band «Subproduct» with the program  «A Bus to Uman»

Yuriy Zavadskyi, Andriy Kapusta, Timur Skorbenko, Rostyslav Kovalchuk, Bogdan Suprunyuk

Probably the only modern author of “phonetic poetry” in Ukraine Yuriy Zavadskyi continues the tradition of avant-garde European literature, working with sound forms of text.

Sound environment that is created by the band “Subproduct” saturates space and imbues consciousness. The effect is achieved by the usage of modern analog and digital devices that transform real sound and electric signal in a single stream. The musical environment of Ternopil is known by the trend towards irrelevance, which is supplemented by “wording”  of individual fragments, verbalization and monetization, which is in the responsibility of Zavadskyi. “Transport” theme refers attention to cyber essence of modern human. This is a combination of ”noise” and “poetry” that forces the audience to look at themselves and feel themselves.

  • Yuriy Zavadskyi (vocals, vinyls, intonarumori, sound)
  • Timur Skorbenko (vocals, kakofonator, loopers, dog-blabber)
  • Rostyslav Kovalchuk (drums, special effects, beatmachine)
  • Andriy Kapusta (decks, loopers, special effects)
  • Bogdan Suprunyuk (vocals, kaossilator, special effects, didgeridoo)
