A Dialogue about German and Greek Literature

Leipziger Buchmesse

There’s a spirit of optimism in the literary scenes in Athens and Berlin. All of a sudden, major joint literature festivals and symposia, encounters between authors and translators of both languages are taking place, translations of recent literature in both directions are being funded. How can this new interest in a Greco-German literary dialogue be explained? What’s there to discover about books and authors and what inspirations are both sides gaining?
 
With Michaela Prinzinger, translator and author; Christos Asteriou, author and translator; moderator: Konstantinos Kosmas, coordinator Centrum Modernes Griechenland, Freie Universität Berlin
 
The event is organised in collaboration with ARTE.
