Black Sea Stories

Is there an ›Eastern‹ narrative? Why is political and artistic discourse often dominated by the West? How can history be told in many voices so that an equal Eastern narrative can emerge? The transcultural literary project »Black Sea Stories« brings together authors from Armenia, Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania, and Ukraine in order to keep the dialogue about the meaning of the Black Sea region open in times of war and hatred. Five of the authors involved in the project, including curator Nino Haratischwili and Lisa Weeda, will discuss the project.
Black Sea Stories is a project of the Goethe-Zentrum Yerevan and the Goethe-Instituts Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania, and Ukraine in collaboration with curator Nino Haratischwili. The project is supported by Literature Initiative Georgia; ARI Literary and Talent Agency/ Armenia; Literarisches Colloqium Berlin e. V., and the international literature festival Berlin.
On September 13, 2023, the second part of this event will take place at the Literary Colloquium Berlin with other authors involved in the project.
