DESCRIPTION

How does one attempt the fractured, splintered alterna-realities of everyday existence? Whether defying thematic tropes or upending chronological flow, the writers on this panel toy with multiple expectations ranging from characterisation to logic and time zones.

This session is presented in partnership with Goethe-Institut Singapore and is made possible with the assistance of the High Commission of Canada and the Embassy of Portugal.
