Bernardo Carvalho: "Perspectives and Identities"
Reading and talk
For the Brazilian journalist, playwright and author Bernardo Carvalho “literature opens up to a world we still don’t know, a world we still don’t see or don’t want to see.”
Already in his debut Aberração (1993), a collection of short stories, the leitmotifs of his literary work emerge: Secrets to be revealed, the past that permeates the present, poetry and truth that are inextricably entangled, the play with different perspectives and identities. In his following eleven novels Carvalho spans his fictional universe further and further and receives two of the most prestigious literary prizes in Brazil.
In the daadgalerie Bernardo Carvalho will read passages of his latest novel Simpatia pelo demônioand have a talk with the author Rafael Cardoso about literature, their home country Brazil and their life in Berlin.
Bernardo Carvalho was a guest of the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program in 2011 and will serve as 42nd Samuel Fischer Visiting Professorship at the Peter Szondi Institute of Comparative Literature, during winter semester 2019/2020.
