What archives will historians of the future turn to in order to provide a comprehensive and representative picture of German society since the 1960s? What access to archives, letters, diaries, whether in analogue or digital form, will they even have? And how broad will the spectrum of migrant perspectives be in the available archive material?

Members of Die Junge Akademie wish to invite interested parties to a public reading entitled “Migration, outer and inner. Identity, plural and none. Words, uttered and unheard” on 14 July, 2023. Diana Miznazi, a Syrian architect who left her home country due to the ongoing war, will read a selection of poems by Zohair Kirakosian (1949–2005), who fled Syria for Germany in the mid-1980s. The award-winning German author and member of Die Junge Akademie Senthuran Varatharajah will then present his own poetic impressions of these texts. All texts are currently unpublished. The event will be held in Arabic, English, and German.

The public reading will mark the end of the internal workshop “Archives and Identity”, which Die Junge Akademie members Simon Wolfgang Fuchs (Islamic Studies) and Racha Kirakosian (German Medieval Studies) are organising in Freiburg im Breisgau from 13 to 14 July, 2023.

If you wish to attend the reading, please email Yvonne Borchert at: borchert@diejungeakademie.de

    • Workshop „Künstler*innen über Kunst“ ('artists on art')

      Talking about art: For some artists, the linguistic construction of an artistic programme or an artistic position is an inherent part of their work. Others see it as a challenging communicative task to speak and write about their own art in professional contexts or in front of a critical audience. In addition to individual differences, there are also differences specific to art forms and media.

      The aim of this interdisciplinary workshop organised by the Working Group Language is to shed light on the broad field of artistic communication.
