Writer and photographer Yevgenia Belorusets (“Lucky Breaks”, “War Diary”) is one of the most important Ukrainian voices of our time. In February 2022, she lived through Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in Kyiv. Since then, she has shared her experiences with the German public in the form of published diaries, columns and radio features. Now, Yevgenia Belorusets’ third book is being published in German. In “Modern Animal: A Cycle of Lectures on the Modern Lives of Animals”, she has succeeded in creating a part-fairytale, part-realistic panorama of the present day, in which the boundaries between humans and animals become increasingly blurred. The focus of Belorusets’ poetic prose may be on animals, but the events she describes are based on deeply human behavior. This allows her to create her own linguistic sphere for marginalized experiences in today’s Ukraine. Reading by: Barbara Auer; Host: Sabine Scholt
