04.11. Matinée on Annie Ernaux

Annie Ernaux read together … and listen! This event invites you to discover the work of the Nobel Prize winner to be rediscovered. Based on of “Les années” – “The years”, this great, story told in an idiosyncratically subjective way of France, we explore in a reading-friendly conversation Ernaux’s work and her writing, which is about remembering and forgetting, about family secrets, around the shame of being out of ‘simple circumstances’ in the countryside, and to explore the role of women since the postwartime revolves. The countless references to chansons in this text are made audible by singer Erwan Tacher. Excerpts from readings complement the conversation and song, allowing Ernaux’s work to be experienced in new ways.
