Edmund de Waal Psalm Venice Installation View 13

This year's Kirker Lecture coincides with the unveiling of Edmund de Waal's major work for the Ghetto in Venice. Drawing on the themes of his psalm project - the poetry of exile, the co-existence of different communities and languages and the history of translation in Venice over the course of a thousand years, Edmund de Waal considers the rich heritage of the Ghetto as a place of exchange in many different senses. This event is in aid of Venice in Peril.
