Rhine-South-Africa-Fellows: Sylt Foundation and stimmen Afrikas at Allerweltshaus Cologne started the Residency exchange programme for writers from Germany and South Africa in 2015.
Two writers meet, exchange their works and introduce the foreigner into the versatile worlds of Cologne and Johannesburg. Each year a German writer will travel to Johannesburg and a South African writer will travel to Cologne to meet, share works and take part in the cultural life of the two cities.
Swantje Lichtenstein will stay in Johannesburg from 25th of August till 24th of September.
In exchange, renowned South African columnist and author Fred Khumalo had travelled to Cologne in May 2016. Fred Khumalo is author of the novel Bitches’ Brew (Jacana Media, 2006), for which he was awarded the European Union Prize for Literature in 2006. He is a fellow of the Academy of the Arts of the World.
