“I got imprisoned for rock and roll”: Andrzej Stasiuk and the Literature of Periphery – A lecture by Dr. Krzysztof Gajewski

KF Online Programs.

Andrzej Stasiuk (b. 1960) is one of the most renowned Polish writers of the turn of 20 and 21 centuries. In his case, biography is intermingled with the artistic creation and almost inseparable from it. The culture of the United States played a key role in his intellectual formation. He calls himself a child of communism and American pop-culture. Stasiuk's prose's point of departure is a margin and a periphery in sociological, cultural, moral, and geographical meaning. He continually plays a game with his provincial origins, both in social and national dimensions, and seeks to penetrate the global province such as Central and Eastern Europe to find his own private cultural and spiritual center in it.
