Description Karl-Markus Gauss sees great potential in the phenomenon oft he border and near-border regions on both sides oft he border, if we grasp them not through the centre's desire für self-legitimation at the edges of its space, but as the space of autonomy of he territories on both sides of he border, thus connecting them across the border and emancipatinig them from their respective centres. Cross-border writing tries to avoid some automatisms of thinking and writing after the long isolation caused by the dictatorships of he 20th century.
