AGYA Salon with Muhsin al-Ramli − Iraq, Dreams, and Expression
October 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The new event series ‘AGYA Literary Salon’ hosts both established and emerging Arab and German authors to discuss their literary careers, visions, and latest works. The Salon especially aims to introduce new literary talents and unknown texts to the public, presenting new thoughts, expressing human values, and providing a source for inspiration.
The second Salon welcomes Dr. Muhsin al-Ramli, Iraqi writer, poet, co-founder and editor of the Arabic literature magazine Alwah living in Spain. Being famous for his translations of classical Spanish literature such as Don Quixote into Arabic, Muhsin al-Ramli talks about his writing experience between Iraq and Spain, about lost dreams, and his anguished Iraq. The conversation also takes up the question on how to write about Iraq today without falling into the trap of memory and whether literature help us move forward.
