“The topography of this city should become recognisable in its (neo)colonial structure, and the text passages that will be read on this literature walk should make cracks in the history of violence of this, our city, which is covered with sticky icing, visible, audible and thus tangible,” writes Jaqueline Ejiji in the invitation to her literature walk, which brilliantly concludes the festival programme on the European Day of Languages.
Participation is free, but registration is required.
