Description (in English): 

The aim of this interdisciplinary practice-based artistic investigation has been to create a multi-linguistic and interactive online poetic narrative, The Poem that Crossed the Atlantic, and this accompanying website. The Poem is fed by the stories gathered in the website through uploaded posts. The interlacing of the stories will increase with the number of posts. Its main inspiration has been a personal story rooted in historical events of the Spanish Civil War and the Spanish and Chilean Historical Memory, interconnected with the involvement of the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda in the evacuation and rescue of 2,200 Spanish civil war exiles- including my own grandfather- from French concentration camps to Valparaiso, Chile, in the Winnipeg ship in 1939.
