The publishing house Clio, with the support of TRADUKI, organised several promotions with Jürgen Kocka, whose book Capitalism: A Short History has been published in Serbian. The events with the renowned social historian from Berlin attracted a lot of audience and media attention. Kocka gave interviews for the newspapers Danas (Jirgen Koka: Marks je bio intelektualni div) and Vreme (Kapitalizam nije kriv za sve), while the radio station Belgrade 3 devoted to him and his work one emission of the Tribine program.
“Lifelong Freedom” – this expression, inspired from the freedom discourse of Serbian surrealists from the beginning of the 20th century was the topic of the 4th Mobile Writers’ Colony taking place in Čelobrdo, Kotor, and Budva in Montenegro from 25 September to 10 October. The project was organized by ZMUC from Belgrade and Za Druga from Petrovac and was supported by TRADUKI.
Goethe-Institut in Sarajevo hosted on October 7 a literary evening with the German writer Uwe Rada and with Ilir Ferra, an Albanian born Austrian writer. After the introduction by Ivana Nevesinjac, both writers read some excerpts from their work that had to do with the topic of the evening “Culture of the Adratic”. Once, the Iron Curtain went straight through the Adriatic Sea. But now, the people of East Adriatic have again turned towards the sea. Both writers write in their books about this new discovery of the sea and its connecting power. The event was supported by TRADUKI.
