exilliteratur is a platform for projects about incomplete, inaccessible, or fragmented places – scenes that we cannot visit but can discover in our imagination.

Its name is inspired by the incomplete nature of how we communicate, and how the desire to express ourselves only becomes clear from a distance. ‘Exile Literature’ encompassed the work of writers such as Theodor Adorno and Bertoldt Brecht who had to leave their homelands because of their ideological and political beliefs. This divide led to simultaneous critique and nostalgia for their homelands, which they had to write about from a distant perspective.
