Narrating War. Theme Days at Haus der Kulturen der Welt

From 20 to 22 February 2014
Curated by Carolin Emcke and Valentin Groebner

How can we narrate war at the start of the twenty-first century? What is it about experiences of extreme violence that makes it so difficult to comprehend and to narrate? What does describing the “indescribable” mean for the survivors, and for those who have been spared – and for the observers? The theme days NARRATING WAR, curated by Carolin Emcke and Valentin Groebner, are devoted to this paradox.
