IZfK (2022, Band 6): Poetics and Politics by Women in the Post-Soviet Space, herausgegeben von Anna Fees, Henrieke Stahl und Claus Telge.
In contemporary Russian poetry, a special movement has emerged that engages in political activism under the feminist banner. This form of political poetry aims less at criticism and subversion than at making a direct social impact. Poems are written as per-formative forms of social action and often with a concrete purpose. They aim to resist power and take the side of the oppressed. The poetic subject opens her voice and her body in solidarity with others or courageously opposes the establishment through provocation — even aggression.
