Collective memory meets the present: on the historic Road of Work through the Bergisches Land, Ulrike Anna Bleier talks to people about their work and writes down their stories: of people living in capsules and of the interpreter who translates the fates of refugees. About dying trees, green eggs and the Kastor pit. “When you walk, you tell stories differently, more erratically, more fluidly, more associatively.” Ulrike Anna Bleier is a writer and journalist, and has received several awards for her short prose and novels, including the Dieter Wellershoff Fellowship from the city of Cologne. In 2021 she was writer-in-residence in Quebec, Canada; in 2022 she is on tour for the NRW residency program stadt.land.text.
The reading will take place in the studio of Cologne-based photographer Anja Schlamann, who is showing her award-winning exhibition “Ladentische.” The two artists are working interdisciplinarily on the joint project “Zwischen” on topics such as work, consumption and water.
An event as part of the special program Aufgeschlagen! of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
