ilb | Special | Feminism and Horror Stories: Lesley Nneka Arimah and Carmen Maria Machado

Sep 12, 2020 | 05:00 PM - 06:00 PM

An event cooperatively presented by internationales literaturfestival berlin and EXC 2020 "Temporal Communities"

Two authors under 40 who have both submitted award-winning collections of stories. Their stories tell of the everyday life of young women in Nigeria and the USA. Beyond a purely realistic depiction, the texts incorporate elements of fantasy and horror. Bodies are exposed, injured, and disappear. A virtual encounter and a conversation about storytelling on the border between horror and feminism.

The conversation will be held in English and has been pre-recorded.

This event will be streamed live on the ilb website www.literaturfestival.com
