The Catalogue

The annually-published festival catalogue contains photos, biographies and selected bibliographies of all participating writers.

Since 2003 the authors have additionally been asked to answer a selected question in a concise and spontaneous way. In 2009 and 2008 we have inquired in the “Berlin.Views” of our guests. In the three years before we asked about their “writing space” and received engaging articles. In 2004 we left their thoughts on “Make answer, muse!” In 2003 the question was “What makes the poet tick?” The huge resonance as well as the creativity of the responses surpassed our expectations: notes on restaurant table cloths, photos, collages, drafts, anagrams, poems, aphorisms, short essays in wonderful handwriting and in one case an actual stone.

Catalogue 2008

The motto of the 2008 festival catalogue is “Berlin. Views”. Our invited authors answer questions such as “What do you expect from Berlin? What experiences have you had?” with an abundance of often hand-written texts – poems, anecdotes, short essays and stories – along with sketches, photographs, collages and artistic illustrations. Their accounts take their place among Berlin observations and narratives of well-known literati. The poet Tim Liardet finds Berlin to be the “city of single-mindedness”. The author of children’s books Xosé A. Neira Cruz, meanwhile, travels to Berlin “with borrowed memories”, “with fascination for this city and the the obligation to write a story that has to be related by someone – perhaps even by me.”
