Given the tragedy of war, which affects the whole of Europe with its infernal machine of annihilation of people and humanity, the participating artists wish to offer a moment of solidarity with the victims through their joint project, addressing through their texts and performances the complexity of the themes of war, expulsion and annihilation.
At the same time, at the heart of the project is the search for the imprints the artists experience in their fields of life and work. The realities of the artists' lives in the twin cities of Karlsruhe and Timișoara meet in the stage reading, creating something new. Part of the creative process is to investigate cultural mechanisms that, under certain circumstances, might condense into toxic narratives, one of which is nationalism.
Karin Bruder, with an extract from her new novel "Weiße Jahre", Ondine Dietz, who will read from her novel "Si tacuissez, Scheherezade", and Lorette Cherascu and Henrike Bradiceanu Persem, members of the German-language literary circle "Stafette" in Timișoara, will each read from their lyrical work. Actress Ida Jarcsek-Gaza will read excerpts from "Ungehaltene Reden ungehaltener Frauen" by Christine Brückner.
