Schlechte Wörter – Bad Words

Participation in the new issue of the podcast schlechte Wörter titled I am inviting you to not sleep tonight. After the first season took Ilse Aichinger’s titular essay Bad Words and its resistant poetics as its point of departure, Etel Adnan’s Night takes us into the darkness. Between the revolutionary potential of staying awake and the shrouding qualities of night, the second season negotiates language as a means of silence and the night as a place of the living dead.
