On Mothers

Writing Workshop to Accompany Inside Out – Etgar Keret (with a Tour of the Exhibition and Lunch, in German)

A razor blade, a roll of fabric, a piano: just a few words from writer Etgar Keret’s mosaic of memories of his mother, now to be found in nine short stories written exclusively for the Inside Out exhibition. The exhibition is like a search for clues in which visitors gradually grow familiar with both the mother’s personality and her son’s writing. With the guidance of Dalik Sojref, an educational consultant for the museum, and Guido Rademacher, who teaches creative writing at Alice Salomon University of Applied Sciences Berlin, the participants in the accom­panying writing workshop will try their own hand at creative writing.

What objects spark thoughts of your own mother? What scents, sounds, or feelings do you associate with her? And how can you find unique language for capturing your own mental images in words and putting them on paper? Inspired by Inside Out, by objects, spatial aesthetics, installations, and a thematic lunch at the museum café, the participants will write about mothers or associated subjects. They will discuss frag­ments and themes in smaller groups, then share their first drafts.
