Join us for an evening of German Literature and Literature about Germany, and expect an evening of a different kind. We will have three guest speakers, a creative discussion on the background of cultural research and an exchange of visions and ideas on figures of German Literature, such as Amalie Dietrich. We hope to bring closer to you the different ways in which Literature has inspired contemporary responses in visual art and creative writing respectively.
