The bad, the ugly and the very uncomfortable: a conversation about discomfort in literature

In literature we can be confronted with some rather unsettling things. With a Danish and a Dutch writer, Dorthe Nors and Robbert Welagen, we will talk about how discomfort plays a role in their own writing and literature as a place to explore the dirty, messy and ugly things in life.

Is a good literary work one that makes the reader and the writer feel ill at ease? Is there a line between uncomfortable and unacceptable? Or should literature show us all?

Dorthe Nors and Robbert Welagen tell us how they see the role of discomfort in writing and literature and if literature is a way for people and societies to deal with things that are rather kept in the shadows.

The programma starts at 20:30 at De Balie (Kleine-Gartmanplantsoen 10) in Amsterdam. The language is English.
