Discussions Across the Border – with Jörg Plath and Radka Denemarková

PRAGUE, Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Praha 1 – Monday 16th March 2015, 7 p.m.

The guests of the evening are Jörg Plath, literary critic (Neue Zürcher Zeitung, Deutschlandradio Kultur), who for many years has been writing on Czech literature, and  Radka Denemarková, writer and translator.Hosted by Zuzana Jürgens who prepared the discussion series in collaboration with Václav Havel Library.
Last night of the three-part discussion series continues to talk about the neighborhood of Czech and German relations, initiated by Václav Havel in 1995. In many controversial subjects had managed to find a solution, or at least establish a dialogue, ran a series of Czech and German activities. Still, especially in the Czech Republic, awareness of events in Germany and how we perceive the Germans, is vague – not only because of the language barrier, but also due to the nature of contemporary Czech media scene. The talks aim to contribute at least partially to fill these gaps.
Evening is held in conjunction with Artifact Kulturmanagement with the support of Czech-German Fund for the Future.
