Artists and writers in many countries find themselves endangered and threatened in their work. Spaces for arts and culture are shrinking – not only in war zones but also in countries where governments are acting in an increasingly authoritarian manner.

Since 2017, the fellowship program Torschreiber am Pariser Platz addresses writers in exile who are now continuing their work from here and is funded jointly with the Stiftung Brandenburger Tor. 

The programs’ aim is to create new resonance spaces for the fellows’ artistic work and to make their voices heard across language barriers.
