Cecilia Pavón: My own Temporary Autonomous Zone (held in English)
Tuesday, June 29, 2021
As part of the online series Temperatures, Cecilia Pavón will be reading a selection from her recent collection of short stories Little Joys published by semiotext(e) in 2021. Her narratives move between Berlin and Buenos Aires from the 1990s onwards where they set the pleasures of everyday life against the sneaking anxiety of economic crisis. The characters in Little Joys often live in and around art—they happen to be artists, writers, thinkers, and curators—yet Pavón writes about their existence “unpoetically.” Seemingly mundane stories are recast by the complexity of the emotions of those that experience them, centering the intimate lives of Pavón’s figures against everything else.
Cecilie Pavón lives and works in Buenos Aires. Her publications include Un hotel con mi nombre (A Hotel With My Name), 27 poemas con nombres de persona (2010), the ebook Once Sur (2012), and the short stories Los sueños no tienen copyright (2010) and Pequeño recuento sobre mis faltas (2015). The poetry collections A Hotel With My Name (2015) and Licorice Candies (2016) have been translated into English.
The event is held in English. The participation is free of charge and accessible via the following link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82276764306
