You’re Not the Māori I Had in Mind

11 March, 8pm
This Event Has Been Postponed
Poet and Performer Hinemoana Baker will perform some of her work, and give us a sneak preview of her upcoming book Funkhaus, which will be published by Victoria University Press in May 2020. This latest collection brings a unique perspective both to and from the ‘global North’, and broadcasts unsettling songs of rebirth, love, friendship and alienation across homes and languages, to the living and to the dead.

HINEMOANA BAKER is a poet, musician and creative writing teacher. She traces her ancestry from Ngāti Raukawa, Ngāti Toa Rangatira, Te Āti Awa and Ngāi Tahu, as well as from England and Germany (Oberammergau in Bayern). Her previous poetry collections are mātuhi | needle (2004), kōiwi kōiwi (2010) and waha | mouth (2014). She has also released several albums of original music and more experimental sound art. She works in English, Māori and more recently German, the latter in collaboration with German poet and sound performer Ulrike Almut Sandig. She currently lives in Berlin, where she was the Creative New Zealand Writer in Residence in 2016, and is completing a PhD at Potsdam University. Hinemoana’s new book Funkhaus will be published by Victoria University Press in May 2020. In this latest collection, she brings a unique perspective both to and from the ‘global North’, and broadcasts unsettling songs of rebirth, love, friendship and alienation across homes and languages, to the living and to the dead.
