Issue no. 12

stadtsprachen magazin (2019)


This winter edition of stadtsprachen magazin proves once more that literature and Berlin are mutually dependent on each other. As always, we pay special attention to the hidden voices that scurry from shadow to shadow until the leaves clear and the breath of multilingual streams of thought mixes with the Berlin air.

Literary oxygen seeps into the pores of the city and its people, raising and lowering blood pressure, individually well dosed – a matter close to the heart. We welcome you to the well-deserved winter break with 21 texts by 22 authors* in 11 languages and the work of 13 translators* – freshest world literature from Berlin, prose, essay, poetry in different shades of language, which in the course of change dissolve from the hidden and stir up cold, clear air.
