Start: 26.01.2023

Conceptualised by Penelope Gayer & Ninia LaGrande

From January 2023, we will start a new format: Ninia LaGrande presents queer-feminist literature at the Pavillon. With “Ninia introduces…”, Ninia meets with an author six times a year on the stage of the Pavillon and holds a follow-up discussion with her after a reading.

Queer-feminist literature at the Pavillon

The presenter Ninia LaGrande is launching a new literature series with the Pavillon and the wissensART foundation. In “Ninia introduces…”, Ninia invites people from the queer-feminist context to bring their literature and texts from the fields of fiction, journalism, poetry and pop culture to the stage at the Pavillon on six different evenings in 2023. The authors will read from their current works and then talk to Ninia about their books and socio-political issues. It’s about poetry, literature, humour and diverse perspectives on the pressing issues of our time.

For a long time now, Ninia LaGrande has been presenting books she likes and finds socially relevant on Instagram. The step from the short social media format to the analogue stage was therefore a small one. Together with the wissensART Foundation, programme planner Penelope Gayer and Ninia LaGrande would like to establish a new literature show in Hanover that gives queer-feminist topics and authors more space and attention.

Who Ninia introduces in 2023…

Ninia and Penelope invite people in 2023 who dedicate their writing to topics that are moving our society right now, that are relevant for shaping our common future and that allow us to ask questions and negotiate together. The texts talk about motherhood, abortion rights, Generation Y, wild parties, coping with grief, politics and work critical of racism, among other things. The new literature series starts on the 26th of January 2023 with Elina Penner and her debut novel “Nachtbeeren”.
