Senthuran Varatharajah "Vor der Zunahme der Zeichen"
Senthuran Varatharajah impressed the jury for the Alfred Döblin Scholarship with an excerpt from his manuscript. The highly anticipated first novel of the author and philosopher, born in 1984, has just been published. Without having met, Senthil Vasuthevan and Valmira Surroi talk about themselves in a Facebook dialogue for seven days. What results is a highly-reflective and simultaneously poetic dialogue about the conditions of asylum, about flight, origins and arrival; about remembering and forgetting. Introduction and discussion with Insa Wilke.
