LITRIX.DE AT THE LEIPZIG BOOK FAIR 2019
Spring awakening. German and Greek literature in exchange.
Friday, 22 March
There is a new spirit of optimism in the literary scenes of Athens and Berlin: suddenly major jointly sponsored literary festivals and symposia are being organized where authors and translators of both languages get to meet, translations of current literary works are being sponsored in both directions. How can we explain this newly awakened interest in a Greek-German literary dialogue? What books and authors are there to discover and what inspirations does each side take back with them? These are some of the questions that Michaela Prinzinger, Christos Asteriou and Konstantinos Kosmas will discuss, all of whom are important stakeholders and initiators of literary exchange between Germany and Greece.
Michaela Prinzinger (Germany), translator and author
Christos Asteriou (Greece), author and translator
Moderated by: Konstantinos Kosmas (Germany), Coordinator Centrum Modernes Griechenland, Freie Universität Berlin
