Arrival - My home in my luggage.

Reading of The Poetry Project e. V. in cooperation with the project TalentCAMPUS 18+ of the VHS Steglitz-Zehlendorf

Introduction: Hanna Schygulla reads from Jenny Erpenbeck's »going, left, gone« and Bertolt Brecht's »Concerning the label emigrants«. As a companion of the Literature Initiative, Hanna Schygulla supports literary projects for young people. At the same time, the promotion of young refugees and the exchange with them are particularly important to her.

The young people of the writing group VHS Steglitz, the writing group Pfefferwerk and DRK, as well as two winners of the Else Lasker-Schüler Lyrikpreis will read their poems and lyrical descriptions of fate. They wrote about their flight, the arrival in Germany, about loneliness, longing, love, freedom, exclusion, responsibility and respect.

Readings will be in Arabic, German, and Persian. After the reading, a discussion will take place.

Artistic Direction: Steffi Eisenschenk, The Poetry Project
Reading of the German texts: Florian Goldberg
