In 2017, the Austrian Foreign Ministry and TRADUKI have a common literary focus on the Croatian literature. Within this project, Ivana Bodrožić gave a reding in October in Trausdorf/Trajštof. The event was organized in cooperation with the Mattersburg Literary House and the Scientific Institute of Burgenland Croats.
On 23-27 August 2017, the 16th edition of the international literature festival Poetische Quellen (Poetical Sources) took place. The festival’s artistic director Michael Scholz created an impressive program, in which 34 writers, philosophers, translators, journalists and musicians from 7 countries visited the neighbouring towns of Bad Oeynhausen and Löhne in Ostwestfalen-Lippe. Owing to the first cooperation with the poetry festival Sarajevo Poetry Days, initiated by Dževad Karahasan and Michael Scholz, the opening ceremony was devoted to the city of Sarajevo and to the culture of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The TRADUKI funded translation of the Macedonian cult novel Пиреј [Pirey/Couch Grass] by Petre M. Andreevski was published in German under the title Quecke by Guggolz-Verlag in August 2017. The novel celebrated its formal book launch on 29th September 2017, at a public event in collaboration with Buchhandlung Godolt.
