How to create literature in face of the devastation, exploitation, and extermination? How to tell the stories of the missing?

In face of the tragedy of losing his parents in the concentration camps of the Second World War, the French writer George Perec narrates the disappearance of his parents in non-conventional ways, the first of them through the use of lipograms (texts where one or several letters of the alphabet is deliberately eliminated), the second one with something he called the potential memory, and the next through the construction of non-linear stories.

The workshop will take place from September 4th to October 16th (six sessions), on Wednesday, from 19 to 21 hours.


The course will be taught in the headquarters of the Xavier Villaurrutia Literary Creation Center, with a capacity limited to 10 persons.
