Being Exchanged: Between Paris, Stuttgart and Ivano-Frankivsk

Yuri Andrukhovytsh, Lubomír Martinek and Sudabeh Mohafez experience the Other in completely different ways: as a confrontation in the role of the immigrant, as a frustrating experience while engaging in a discussion about the homeland and as an overall attitude towards life in the present day. All three authors talk about their way of mediating in the midst of foreignness and read from their current works.

Sudabeh Mohafez was born in 1963 in Teheran, moved to Berlin in 1979 and has been living in Stuttgart for ten years now where she works as an author. Her latest works are a volume of short stories entitled das zehn zeilen buch [the ten line book] and the novel brennt [burning].

Yuri Andrukhovytsh was born in Ivano-Frankivsk in Western Ukraine in 1960. Since the 2000’s he is considered to be the most important voice of Ukrainian literature in Germany. His latest publication as an editor is the volume Euromaidan. Was in der Ukraine auf dem Spiel steht [Euromaidan: What’s at Stake in Ukraine], which was published by Suhrkamp Verlag publishing house.

Lubomír Martínek lived in Prague until 1979 and then emigrated to Paris. In his primarily essayistic works he writes about the lost identity of modern humans.
