This summer the audience is invited to join us at the poolside in TROPEZ for a series of live readings and poolside chats with writers, poets and artists. Literature has the means to help us escape, reimagine the world anew, or offer bold new ways to engage with the world. It's empathy building. It's also fun. Between weekly interactions with the Tropez live webcam, BDP and TROPEZ produce Empathy When - the TROPEZ Writing Podcast! We will be recording the conversations of John Holten with his guests Dani Arbid, Samantha Bohatsch, Alan Murrin, Mitch Speed, Musa Okwonga, Elif Saydam, Jasmine Reimer, Adam Fearon, and Anna Szaflarski for the public to enjoy socially distanced storytelling!
For the eighth edition, we are joined by artist Samantha Bohatsch, whose practice covers many shapes and forms, with texts, poetry performances and prints among them. After her reading, Bohatsch and BDP's John Holten discuss about Bohatsch's deployment of fiction in her narratives and the role that performance takes. Samantha Bohatsch is based in Berlin. She studied in Vienna, Berlin and Karlsruhe where she finished her studies as a Meisterschülerin of Silvia Bächli. Recently she showed works at Kunsthalle Baden-Baden and at Efremidis Gallery in Berlin.
