An evening with Breyten Breytenbach & Charl-Pierre Naudé

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.
