Poetry Slam. An art form.
Invented in 1980s Chicago, the splicing of literature, poetry and rhythm is no longer a fleeting trend, but a globally renowned art form with countless of fierce aficionados. Across the Atlantic, in Germany, Hamburg has become a thriving hub of the spoken word movement. Located on the banks of Hamburg’s Alster lake, the Mercedes me Store has become a fixture on the city’s cultural circuit with its varied and vibrant blend of art events, after work parties or live gigs – the latter including a prime performance by spine-tingling singer-songwriter Alexa Feser.
