The author, activist, and exile Mahmoud Darwish died in 2008. He was a legend in Palestine. Ten years after his death, he is being commemorated at Bozar by three writers who feel an affiliation with Darwish’s life and work.
There's the legendary South African and former exile Breyten Breytenbach, who is now almost eighty and who wrote a poem about Darwish after he died, the Palestinian poet Asmaa Azaizeh, who was the first director of the Mahmoud Darwish Museum in Ramallah, and the New York-based Iraqi author Sinan Antoon, who translated Darwish’s work.
