english language

Philipp Hauß, ensemble member of the Burgtheater, reads various texts on language, homeland and identity by the renowned Ukrainian writer and essayist Oksana Zabuzhko, followed by a dialogue with the author about her work and current political, intellectual and cultural upheavals in Ukraine and Europe. Viennese musician and media artist Klaus Karlbauer will accompany the discussion with his self-constructed zither, along with familiar European sounds, ironically alienated by electronic beats. Set up by Rita Czapka.
