A virtual journey: Mutterschrauben by Sarah Rinderer
Tue 16 Jun 2020
Let the up-and-coming Austrian writer Sarah Rinderer take you on a digital journey exploring her short story Mutterschrauben, combining a virtual reading with unique visual elements.
Her text Mutterschrauben tells the story of an encounter between a grandmother and her granddaughter who set off on a digital journey down memory lane visiting the grandmother's birthplace. By using Google Maps at the kitchen table, they virtually head to the Czech (formerly Sudeten-German) town Planá, where the grandmother was driven away from in 1946.
In current times, when travel has become only possible via Street View, Sarah Rinderer shares a unique voyage with us: A specially designed video reading, combining past and present, incomplete childhood memories and pixel errors, to create an engaging dialogue.
