Swedish translator and author Cecilia Hansson has joined our agency. We are looking forward to working with her and her amazing works.
Cecilia Hansson, born 1973 in Luleå, is a writer, poet, journalist and translator from German into Swedish, including poetry by Nora Gomringer and Monika Rinck. She has published several books of poetry herself. Hansson has lived in Vienna and has a Master in German Literature/Aesthetics/Philosophy. Today she lives in Stockholm.
Her recently published book Hopplöst, men inte allvarligt – Konst och politik i Centraleuropa – a remarkable collection of interviews with the 18 most important Austrian, Hungarian and Romanian contemporary artists – serves as a key to understanding the political situation in Europe today. The conversations with artists such as Marina Abramović, Péter Esterházy, Péter Nádas, Herta Müller and Michael Haneke sharpen the reader’s awareness for the challenges that define life in post-communist or post-fascist Europe.
