In a conjoint lecture performance, Austrian writers Verena Dürr and Raphaela Edelbauer will ‘perform’ parts from their works Memorabilia and Das Loch, first presented at the Austrian Bachmann Prize 2017 and 2018. Both texts relate to mountains and the hidden secrets beneath and between those mountains. Raphaela Edelbauer was awarded the Bachmann Audience Prize for her novel Das flüssige Land, which will be published in English next year. Memorabilia was translated by Jonathan Blower, Das Loch by Ollie Evans.
