When Loss Becomes Discovery

In German and Arabic with Arabic translation

German Stories: (UN-)CERTAINTIES

World history is full of things that have been lost – willfully destroyed or mislaid over the course of time. In her book "An Inventory of Losses" Judith Schalansky dedicates herself to those aspects which the lost leaves behind: dying echoes and disappearing steps, whispers and legends, apostrophes and phantom pains. In this session, Safiya Al Maskari and Judith Schalansky speak about the different facettes of memories and loss.
