Writer’s residence in Paris

Since Friday, I’m in Paris for a writer’s residence organized by the Flemish-Dutch House deBuren. They give the opportunity to 18 young Flemish and Dutch (fiction and non-fiction) writers to spend two weeks in Paris and to write some texts inspired by the city. Throughout these two weeks, literary, cultural and political figures such as the Dutch author Adriaan van Dis and the Flemish Minister of Culture Sven Gatz are invited for a meal, a talk and a discussion.

This residence also feels a bit like coming home, as we are staying at the Fondation Biermans-Lapôtre (la maison des belges), where I resided during my research stay at the Université Paris 2 Panthéon-Assas last year. Moreover, I will again be spending quite some time in the Cinémathèque française, for archival research on the Dutch filmmaker Joris Ivens.
