FOR COHESION WITHIN EUROPE

“The voices of the authors are highly significant for a Europe that doesn’t stop questioning and overcoming borders”, says Frank-Walter Steinmeier, a member of the initiating group of the European Writers’ Conference.

THE PROGRAM HAS BEEN FINALIZED

30 writers from all over Europe will discuss Europe and its future from a literary perspective during five panels and the Long Night of European Literature. Click here for the whole program.

What are European values, and for whom do they apply? How much immigration can culture handle, and how much does it need? What happens when language is left behind in flight?

THE AUTHORS HAVE CONFIRMED THEIR PARTICIPATION

30 authors from Europe, Israel, Tunisia, and Syria will discuss under the motto “WritingAwayBorders” at the Academy of Arts and at the Deutsches Theater on May 9 and 10.

In five panels, the participants will focus on essential questions: What is Europe, and where does it end? What are European values, and to whom do they apply? How much of an influx can culture handle, and how much of an influx does it need? What happens when language is left behind in flight? And can Europe use words and histories to find a way out of the crisis?
