Project outline “EROSION II” (working title):

Starting from the text "e r o s i o n," which consists of clearly framed poetry with a visual focus, Julia Toggenburger wants to proceed in a more prosaic manner in her next writing step. She wants to find out how the change in its genre itself influences the content of the text. While in "e r o s i o n" the feeling of powerlessness of the lyrical self is predominant, "EROSION II" aims to perceive itself as a space for action and bring the landscape back into play more prominently, as well as give the I-narrator more time, more lines, and more opportunities for the voice than just the hurried, quick forward escape.
