Literature in Flux is a literary journey that creates a movement of stories from the Balkan region and Turkey and initiates a dialogue among authors of this region.
In 2011 the journey started on a historical steam paddle boat along the Danube from Bulgaria to Austria. This year the flow of literature will continue along the Mediterranean coast. From 1 to 10 March 2012 we organize readings and discussions in Split, Tirana and Izmir.
During these events we will focus on the cultures of remembrance and construction of history in our own and the in the societies of our neighbours and, thus, further develop those topics we touched during the literary journey along the Danube.
The project is supported by the European Commission and is held under the patronage of the Albanian and Croatian Commissions for UNESCO in 2012.
Our partners in 2012 are Udruga KURS in Croatia, The German-Albanian cultural society "Robert Schwartz" in Albania and in Turkey.
In 2011 "Literature in Flux" was under the patronage of the Austrian, Croatian, German, Hungarian, and Slovakian Commissions for UNESCO. Project partners were the Elias Canetti Center in Bulgaria, the Culture Port Cetate, the International Center for Literary Tranlators in Serbia, Udruga Kurs in Croatia, the Hungarian Translators' House, the literature information center in Bratislava and the Alte Schmiede in Vienna.
