TitelConfrontations. Experimental Dutch and German Literature of the Long Sixties
BeschreibungBrussels, 8-9 September 2015
Venue: KVAB, Rubenszaal, Hertogsstraat 1, 1000 Brussel
Organisation: SEL-Olith, KVAB Contactforum

The conference Confrontations explores the manifold relationships between neo-avant-garde literature in Dutch and in German, adjacent literatures with a distinct identity when it comes to the rise of the neo-avant-garde. Experimental authors from these countries explored similar stylistic, narrative, and intermedial techniques (e.g., montage in fiction, visual procedures in poetry, jazz-like improvisation in poetry and prose) and faced similar ideological challenges (e.g., the attraction of radical leftist thought) and institutional struggles (e.g., with regard to publication strategies). The papers presented at the conference offer a representative view of the Dutch and German literary neo-avant-garde, but also seek to shed new light on the oeuvres of the selected corpus precisely by confronting each Dutch-speaking writer with a German-speaking writer. On a methodological level, the conference goes beyond traditional national philological views and beyond the concept of influence. The papers do not aim to map influences and intertextual relations, but to ‘confront’ authors, i.e. to discuss revealing and meaningful similarities as well as differences. The comparison will highlight, for the first time, the affinities between literary neo-avant-gardes in the Dutch and in the German language.
