Accompanying event to the exhibition WOMEN ON THE MOVE – Eastern Europe between Tradition and Action

In November, we look forward to award-winning author Żanna Słoniowska, who will read from her book Das Licht der Frauen.

In a house in the middle of Lviv live four women who love each other as much as they hate each other. They share their desire for freedom, their rebelliousness – and their unhappy loves. Until the day that changes everything: Marianna is shot dead in the street. From the window, her daughter watches as the funeral procession turns into a demonstration. Marianna was not only a celebrated singer, but also an activist in the fight for an independent Ukraine. Under the same window, years later, is a man who brings Marianna’s daughter closer to her hometown – and to her mother, who died far too young. Against the backdrop of Lviv’s turbulent history, Żanna Słoniowska tells of mothers and daughters, of private and social revolts, the unconditional belief in freedom, emancipation and love (for information, see Kampa Verlag).

Admission 8 € | reduced 5 €. The event will be held in German and English!
The number of participants is limited, so we recommend booking an online ticket, which you can get here.
