The DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program in South Africa presents:
Of literary buccaneers and global (master)minds: an evening with Breyten Breytenbach and Charl-Pierre Naudé, chaired by Ingrid de Kok
Breyten Breytenbach and Charl-Pierre Naudé in conversation on a postmodern and postcolonial world and its many realities. They speak of global literature, middle worlds and a life in transit, of expectations and reality of the New South Africa, about awakening and remembrance, visions
and sore spots – and the hope of the fruition of the rainbow-nation.
Breyten Breytenbach is internationally known as one of South Africa’s most important poets and was a 1989 DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program guest. Charl-Pierre Naudé’s literary works are considered to be milestones in Afrikaans poetry.

Time: 5:00 for 5:30pm
Venue: Idasa’s Cape Town Democracy Center, 6 Spin Street

The DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program (Berliner Künstlerprogramm, www.berliner-kuenstlerprogramm.de) is one of the most renowned international programs, offering grants to artists in the fields of visual arts, literature, music and film. As part of the German cultural weeks entitled “Football meets Culture”, the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program is organising a series of art events in Johannesburg and Cape Town. They are meant to highlight the global and cosmopolitan dimension of soccer and to bring together artists who are cross-border forward thinkers in a postmodern world.
