Authors Julia Knaß and Anna Neuwirth live and write on the Internet and in Austria. They are in Berlin at the invitation of Herzstückverlag, whose new EINS series will publish one volume by each of them this year. Knaß' & Neuwirth's writing is characterized by a blending of dream and reality, an experimentation with new forms and nudes.
"I can organize my texts according to who I just cried over and/or who I just fucked," they write in a joint piece, saying they like to merge into each other, in writing and in life. Thematically, it's about queerfeminist and collective writing, female gaze, ghosts, jellyfish, and the literary establishment.
On the evening, Julia Knaß and Anna Neuwirth will briefly step out of their open windows and read from recent texts. Johannes Finke from Herzstück Verlag will ask them questions.
