His texts explore, in an entertaining way, the inability to communicate and understand the world. »It’s Keret’s particular brand of brilliance that can simultaneously hold tragedy and comedy, and in such compact packages.« [Financial Times] Etgar Keret participates remotely. In cooperation with EXC 2020 Temporal Communities: Doing Literature in a Global Perspective.
The conversation will be held in English.
