Creative writing workshop in Berlin

Living in a different country, in a foreign society, forces us to deal with a variety of issues. It begins with the mundane and bureaucratic, continues with the dialogue between the foreign and familiar and goes deeper into questions related to national, cultural and personal identity. The language with which we speak and write plays an essential part in this process.

In Itamar Orlev´s and Mati Shemoelof’s writing workshop we will try to examine different aspects of our status as foreigners and Hebrew writers in Berlin through weekly writing exercises; we will try to understand how these can create a fertile ground for creation. At the same time, we will discuss literary texts from the past and present that touch on diverse dimensions of the encounter between art and immigration.

This is an opportunity to learn from two teachers with different perspectives and a rich and diverse writing experience, who will try to help you exact and develop the important elements in writing prose while focusing on the creative opportunities offered in Berlin. 13 sessions, up to 10 participants. Soon will open a new one and will updated the details.

Café Abraham - Interreligiöser Runder Tisch

  • 17-18 Dänenstraße Berlin, Berlin, 10439 Germany (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

A reading with Cafe Abraham. This is what they wrote on the invitation:

Zum Café Abraham Berlin: Wir sind ein junges, motiviertes Team, das im Rahmen des Projektes „Café Abraham“, das 2014 von Studierenden der Universität Erlangen gegründet wurde und mittlerweile Lokalgruppen in verschiedenen Städten in Deutschland und auch außerhalb hat (z.B. Bonn, Düsseldorf, Heidelberg, Freiburg, Wien). Es hat sich zum Ziel gesetzt, Menschen mit muslimischem, jüdischem, christlichem und anderem Hintergrund regelmäßig an einen Tisch zu bringen, Dialog und Austausch zu ermöglichen und dass sie sich gemeinsam für ein demokratisches Zusammenleben einsetzen. Unsere Lokalgruppe in Berlin besteht seit Januar 2018, und hat seitdem mehrere Veranstaltungen, u.A. einen sehr erfolgreichen LGBT+-Diskussionsabend (https://taz.de/Queer-und-glaeubig/!5593401/) organisiert.  

Wir haben festgestellt, dass es in Berlin zahlreiche Dialog-Initiativen und interessierte Menschen und Organisationen gibt, und möchten sie nun zu einem Interreligiösen Runden Tisch zusammenbringen. Hier wollen wir die Landschaft der bestehenden Initiativen aufzeigen, einander kennen lernen, und zukünftige Kooperationen ermöglichen.

Es sollen neue Pläne geschmiedet werden, um regelmäßige Treffen und größere Events auf die Beine zu stellen. Nach unserem spannenden Diskussionsabend zu LGTBQ freuen wir uns auf neue Ideen, neuen Einsatz und viele weitere Projekte.

Dazu laden wir Euch am 24. Oktober 2019 von 18 bis 21 Uhr in die Räume der Katholischen Studierendengemeinde Berlin, Dänenstraße 17/18 ein. (Für künftige Treffen bevorzugen wir einen neutralen Raum, dieses Mal ist es allerdings am einfachsten dort, da dort genügend Raum für alle ist).

The Culture of the Arab Jews / Lyrik Ohne Grenzen

  • 1A An der Dreikönigskirche Dresden, SN, 01097 Germany (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Mit Gedichten und Musik: Hila Amit Abas / Abdulkadir Musa / Mati Shemoelof / Gidi Farhi
Moderation: Hanno Hauenstein

Hila Amit Abas und Mati Shemoelof sind zwei in Israel geborene Mizrachi-Juden mit syrischen, iranischen und irakischen Wurzeln, die mittlerweile in Berlin leben und schreiben. Ihre Literatur verfassen sie auf Hebräisch, der Sprache, mit der sie aufgewachsen sind, die jedoch nicht die Sprache ihrer Eltern ist. Zusammen mit Abdulkadir Musa, einem in Berlin lebenden, kurdischen Dichter gründeten sie “Anu: Jews and Arabs Writing in Berlin”. Anu schafft einen Raum für künstlerische Events und Diskussionen zum Thema der Verbindung zwischen Juden und Arabern im Nahen Osten – sowie im Europa von heute.

Der Ort Berlin bietet Autorinnen und Autoren dieser Tage einen Raum, wo – anders als in ihren Herkunftsländern – ein Austausch auf gleicher Augenhöhe möglich ist. Im Rahmen der
Jüdischen Woche Dresden Abend möchten wir den in Berlin begonnenen Dialog fortsetzen
und ihm dabei neues Leben einhauchen – durch Literatur, Musik und Diskussionen.

Zu den Beitragenden:
Dr. Hila Amit (* 1985, Tel Aviv) ihr erster Roman „Moving On From Bliss" (Tel Aviv: Am Oved, 2016), wurde mit dem Preis des israelischen Ministeriums für Kultur für Debütautoren ausgezeichnet.Sie lebt seit 2014 in Berlin und ist Mitgründerin des neuen literarischen Projekts "Anu אנו نحن: Jews and Arabs writing in Berlin".

Gidi Farhi ist ein in Israel geborener Musiker und Komponist, der seit 2006 in Berlin lebt.
Farhi ist in verschiedenen musikalischen Richtungen aktiv – darunter orientalische Musik, Indie,Folk, Rock sowie improvisierte Musik.

Abdulkadir Musa ist kurdischer Lyriker und Übersetzer und Stipendiat des Berliner Senats für
nicht-deutsche Literatur. Er arbeitet zudem auch als Sozialarbeiter und kultureller Berater.

Mati Shemoelof ist ein arabisch-jüdischer Dichter, der in Israel bereits zahlreiche
Kurzgeschichten und Gedichtbände veröffentlicht hat. In diesem Jahr erschein sein
Gedichtband “Texte zwischen Bagdad, Haifa und Berlin” im Aphorismen-Verlag in deutscher
Übersetzung.

Hanno Hauenstein ist freier Autor und Journalist. Er veröffentlichte für diverse Print- und
Online-Medien wie DIE ZEIT, BLAU Magazin, frieze, und i24news. Im Jahr 2016 gründete er das deutsch-hebräische Kulturmagazin Aviv Magazin

Mit freundlicher Unterstützung von der Fraktion DIE LINKE im Sächsischen Landtag.

Opening German-Israeli Literature Days 2019

"Louder, louder and louder" is the motto of this year's German-Israeli Literature Days, which will gather authors for a reading and debate on how to deal with populists and polarizations from September 4 to 8, 2019. 

Since 2005, the Heinrich Böll Foundation and the Goethe Institute have been organizing the German-Israeli Literature Days in Tel Aviv and Berlin on an annual basis. The series of events promotes exchange between the two countries and allows writers to speak on pressing contemporary issues - through their work and with their views. 

With, among others, Dov Alfon, Friedrich Ani, Maayan Ben Hagai, Sami Berdugo, Dilek Güngör, Mati Shemoelof, Tijan Sila. The festival will be opened on 4 September at the Deutsches Theater by Prof. Dr. Klaus-Dieter Lehmann, President of the Goethe-Institut and Dr. Ellen Ueberschär, Chairman of the Heinrich Böll Foundation. 

Other venues include the Hackesche Höfe cinema and the Heinrich Böll Foundation.

Without Borders: Online Hebrew Writing Workshop

The online writing workshop of the writers Mati Shemoelof and Itamar Orlev, who live in Berlin, is due to open immediately after Passover / Easter on April 30 (first session but one can enter it in any time). The online writing workshop will bring together Hebrew writers from all over Europe for a two-hour weekly meeting. In the workshop we will practice together the essential elements of writing.

Over the past year (2018-2019) we have been conducting workshops in Berlin whose success lies in the combination of the act of writing itself and the encounter of Israeli writers living for various reasons outside of Israel. In the online workshop we seek to eliminate the geographical distance that exists in our building and to allow an "intimate" encounter within the virtual space, which, too, will presumably have an impact on the nature and content of the workshop.

The opening workshop will be 10 sessions and will take place on Tuesday’s from 11:00 to 13:00 CET.

Living in a different country, in a foreign society, forces us to deal with a variety of issues. It begins with the mundane and bureaucratic, continues with the dialogue between the foreign and familiar and goes deeper into questions related to national, cultural and personal identity. The language with which we speak and write plays an essential part in this process.

In Itamar Orlev´s and Mati Shemoelof’s writing workshop we will try to examine different aspects of our status as foreigners and Hebrew writers in Berlin through weekly writing exercises; we will try to understand how these can create a fertile ground for creation. At the same time, we will discuss literary texts from the past and present that touch on diverse dimensions of the encounter between art and immigration.

This is an opportunity to learn from two teachers with different perspectives and a rich and diverse writing experience, who will try to help you exact and develop the important elements in writing prose while focusing on the creative opportunities offered in Berlin. 13 sessions, up to 10 participants. Soon will open a new one and will updated the details.

Without Borders: Online Hebrew Writing Workshop

The online writing workshop of the writers Mati Shemoelof and Itamar Orlev, who live in Berlin, is due to open immediately after Passover / Easter on April 30 (first session but one can enter it in any time). The online writing workshop will bring together Hebrew writers from all over Europe for a two-hour weekly meeting. In the workshop we will practice together the essential elements of writing.

Over the past year (2018-2019) we have been conducting workshops in Berlin whose success lies in the combination of the act of writing itself and the encounter of Israeli writers living for various reasons outside of Israel. In the online workshop we seek to eliminate the geographical distance that exists in our building and to allow an "intimate" encounter within the virtual space, which, too, will presumably have an impact on the nature and content of the workshop.

The opening workshop will be 10 sessions and will take place on Tuesday’s from 11:00 to 13:00 CET.

Reading from ´Bagdad, Haifa, Berlin´, Leipzig Book Fair

I'm very happy to read tomorrow at the Leipziger Buchmesse. Although my book has not been printed yet. However, they listen to a translation of the most important poems from the new book. If you are at the festival, listen to me in conversation with Rainer Zimmer-Winkel, the director of the AphorismA Verlag. It's really exciting.
