Book publications and participation in worldwide events contribute to a successful reputation. In addition, the haiku poems are presented in the context of our international art exhibitions with small-format pictures from all over the world, which in their conception resemble a haiga installation in a grand style. They promote the mutual fertilization of art and poetry in a unique way.
In this international and meditative environment, you will surely feel at ease as a haiku poet, while also benefiting from our popular blogs about the artistic and literary world. We publish them in the Bernsteinrose blog and link them with participant lists. In the same way, messages of popular acclaim are linked to the articles on the exhibitions and the book.
The joint projects with international artists were preceded by a long-standing collaboration with renowned publishing houses. In the art books ‘Kunstretreat 2016’ and ‘Kunstretreat 2017’, Gabriele Walter published 64 haiku poems in total. In addition, together with the Japanese artist Chiemi Itoi, she published the bilingual gift book ‘Katzenliebe – Cat Love’ (a collection of art pictures and haiku poems). Since 2010, she has regularly published haiku poetry as a blog writer.
