New interview

Each moment of this conversation is accompanied by a burning need to unite our real experiences. This need is as pressing now as never before – whether we're talking about those participants within Ukraine, or those Ukrainians who live outside its borders. All of Tanja Maljartschuk's works – both prose and poetry – are at their core a contemplation of that moment when a personally endured, even intimate experience becomes a condition for cohesion of that moment when "I" becomes "We". This moment combines your own experiences with your current ones, with those of another, with those of someone completely unknown – regardless of whether you seek this, whether you wish for it to happen or not. I couldn't have chosen a more attuned conversation partner in the context of correlating life experiences.
