How Female Writers Shape Utopias in Nigeria

Despite the difficult situation in Nigeria, there is a strong women’s movement, especially in the fields of art and literature. Young women stand on the shoulders of pioneers and write courageously about mechanisms of oppression and patriarchal structures, designing social, postcolonial utopias. Their voices are visionary, humorous, and powerful. The panel highlights the current situation and hopes for a free society in Nigeria.

Curated by PEN Berlin.

Hosted by Stefanie Hirsbrunner.

The event will be in English and German.
