Blog | South Westphalia
Tobias Siebert (*1993) is a writer as well as a graduate of the Deutsches Literaturinstitut Leipzig. Before this, he studied comparative literature and language arts in Mainz and Vienna. He has published work in a variety of magazines and anthologies and is a co-producer of the interdisciplinary reading series anemonen. He was a finalist for the Literaturförderpreis (literature encouragement prize) of the state capital of Mainz in 2021. He lives in Leipzig. In his project Komm, lass rausgehen (Come On, Let’s Go Out), he intends to set out on the search in Südwestfalen for subcultural phenomena and observe their visibility within the context of digitalism. What new possibilities and opportunities do a digital infrastructure provide in rural space and what additional significance do the larger cities gain as a result of this? What hobbies for which there is no place in the cities are pursued in the countryside? The impressions he gains over the course of this work will be made into literary miniatures and short essays and published on the blog.
