Operation Tetra-Pack Werkstatt RUSSIAN

Villa Steglitz (Selerweg 17, 12169 Berlin)

The cosmopolitan city of Berlin – a home of authors writing in all world languages. Many have made German their bridge language, others even use it deliberately as their new means of expression, without, however, abstaining completely from their mother tongue. Where can these authors be found?
Operation Tetra-Pack takes a closer look at four of these authors: María Cecilia Barbetta, Dmitri Dragilew, Ricardo Domeneck and Kenan Khadaj. The strategy: In four citywide workshops the authors help translate texts from their original version in Spanish, Russian, Portugiuese or Arabic into German, in order to be accessible to a wider audience. The translators Rike Bolte, Hendrik Jackson, Christiane Quandt and Leila Chammaa work together with the workshop participants who also consult the authors before presenting their result in German. The fruit of this work will appear, alongside the original texts, in an anthology – another illustration of Berlin’s multi-lingual dynamics. The crowning conclusion of this workshop will be an open reading celebrating this multifaceted, polyphonic Tetra-Pack publication!
