'To be an "Experimental Woman Writer". Three words, three difficulties.
Avenue Léon Mahillon 34 Schaerbeek
dr. Hannah Van Hove, FWO postdoctoral researcher at the VUB, invites you to relive part of the childhood of novelist Christine Brooke-Roose (1923-2012).
The experimental British author, in her book entitled Invisible Author, asked: 'Have you ever tried to do something very difficult as well as possible, over a long period of time, and then you found out that no one notices?' Sadly, that happened to Brooke-Rose herself, whose novels and critical texts have been largely forgotten after her death. Yet Brooke-Rose wrote wonderfully innovative fiction in which she conducted various grammatical and typographical experiments with language and form.
In her latest novel, “Life, End Of” she described her experiences during her childhood in Brussels. We invite you to take a walk as we explore the neighborhood where Brooke-Rose used to live and hear about the themes, influences and legacies of this neglected writer. The walk will take place in Dutch on Tuesday and in English on Wednesday. Register beforehand via firstname.lastname@example.org
This walk is also available online via izi.travel application:

Out and about with Berber people from Brussels
Square Sainctelette 20
Various self-organizations and individual artists, in collaboration with the core team of Interlitratour, are organizing an interactive, digital walk in which the Amazigh Literature is highlighted by Berber inhabitants of Brussels through poetry, song and music.
During this walk, the different aspects of the Amazigh culture are discussed. For example, various Berber, Tarafit and Arabic works are presented with appropriate translations into French and Dutch, we bring the poems to life through songs and let the walker discover the world of Berber culture. As a visitor, you can enjoy all this digitally at various points on your walk through Brussels. We stop at 10 points, where the environment forms the backdrop for the stories that various Berber inhabitants of Brussels tell you through poetry readings, music, song and image.
This walk can be done completely independently, but we also plan to offer this walk with a guide when we are allowed to reconvene in group.
