Abstract

To what extent is reading a book like walking into a museum? In this conversation, held in early 2017 at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, Rebecca Braun and Ulrike Draesner explore how identities are forged in both language and material things, and how narratives, both poetic and prosaic, are spatially arranged. The conversation takes inspiration from material objects on display in the Europe Galleries of the Museum to cast a fresh angle on Draesner’s literary practice in her recent work: the novel, Sieben Sprünge vom Rand der Welt, the poetry collection, subsong, and a new text that draws on the life in exile of the expressionist poet and painter Kurt Schwitters.
