Forum Literatur: Grundrechte Lesen. Workshop and Diskussion mit Marlene Streeruwitz.

Grundrechte lesen
Workshop and Discussion with Marlene Streeruwitz (in German)
Friday, January 26, 6pm

“Particularly in times of slogans and banners, the question of who is speaking how from where is important. It is about everyday texts and how, as a matter of course, dignity is bestowed—or usually taken away. How we can speak empathically and stand up to the ecpathic speaking of the public.” (Marlene Streeruwitz)

Admission: 5 Euro / 3 Euro
The public workshop is in German, no further prior knowledge is required. If you are interested, please register at: info[at]
