Literature Beyond Borders

Litteraturhuset collaborates closely with literature houses in Turkey, Kurdistan, Germany, and Ukraine.

Literature Beyond Borders is a long-term collaboration between Litteraturhuset and the literature houses Kıraathane in Istanbul, Wêjegeh Amed in Diyarbakir, Literarisches Colloquium in Berlin, Paul Celan Literaturzentrum in Chernivtsi.

The collaboration works to promote writers and literature from different language regions, exchange authors across borders, share expertise, and uses literature houses as tools to strengthen freedom of expression and access to books in areas facing significant political pressure.

The Literature Beyond Borders collaboration has, among other things, resulted in the digital anthology Hjem (Home), where two authors from each geographical region in the project contributed with newly written texts. The anthology is currently only available in Norwegian.

The project is supported by Allianz Kulturstiftung
