This year’s writer-in-residence at the Ingeborg Bachmann Centre is the Austrian writer Anna Kim. Born in South Korea, Kim spent her formative years in Germany and Austria. A two-year stay in England complemented the multi-cultural background that comes to the fore in her work. Her experience of, and sensitivity to, different cultures finds expression in her novels Bildspur and Die gefrorene Zeit, the latter of which is set after the conflict in Kosovo and describes attempts to come to terms with the past. The English translation of Die gefrorene Zeit was published in 2010.

Translator Mike Mitchell will join Anna Kim in readings from the novel.
