INTER-GENERATIONAL DIALOGUES: WITH VERENA STÖSSINGER & JULIA WEBER
Right now, motherhood is a very topical subject in contemporary literature. In her book ‘Vermengung’ (‘The Mixture’) Julia Weber examines not just the transformation of the body, but also the question of how writing and family, art and the reality of life fit together. In her 1980 book ‘Ninakind. Bilder einer Veränderung’ (Ninachild. Pictures of Change), Verena Stössinger describes her experience in unadorned detail. The literary scholar and author Julia Rüegger will lead the discussion about motherhood and literature across the generational divide.
