To mark the New York release of the latest issue of PROVENCE, New York based author and translator Susan Bernofsky will give a lecture on Robert Walser’s microscripts.
Issue E, published in Autumn / Winter 2012 / 2013, is based on and titled after an issue of the Air France in-flight magazine MADAME. Susan Bernofsky’s literary translations include six works of fiction by the great Swiss-German modernist author Robert Walser, as well as novels and poetry by Jenny Erpenbeck, Yoko Tawada, Gregor von Rezzori, Uljana Wolf and others. She chairs the PEN Translation Committee and is co-editor (with Esther Allen) of the forthcoming Columbia University Press anthology In Translation: Translators on Their Work and What It Means. She is currently writing a biography of Robert Walser as a fellow of the Leon Levy Center for Biography at the CUNY Graduate Center, as well as preparing a new translation of Kafka’s Metamorphosis for Norton.
PROVENCE–edited by Tobias Kaspar and Hannes Loichinger, graphic design by Pascal Storz–is an eight issue magazine, the first issue of which, Issue P, was launched in June 2009 in Basel as part of an exhibition staged with Egija Inzule. Issues R, O, V, E and N have since been published inter alia in association with the exhibition In the Middle of Affairs at the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, and presentations at Silberkuppe, Berlin; The Artist’s Institute, New York (all 2010) and Kunsthalle Zürich (2011).
