In "Mush Room", Cologne-based author Jennifer de Negri explores the fascinating world of mushrooms. Cologne-based translator Maia Traine will also be presenting the volume "Bis der Name verschwindet" by Colombian poet Catalina Garcés Ruiz. The evening will be hosted by Adrian Kasnitz.

Jennifer de Negri lives in Cologne and publishes poetry and prose. In her work, she deals with questions about the we: from multiple perspectives, speculative, non-linear, striving for interconnectedness - and as a process that writes itself out of exclusions.

She studied theater directing and is currently studying postgraduate literary writing at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne. She has taken part in numerous festivals and workshops as a scholarship holder in various fields, including New Plays from Europe at the Staatstheater Wiesbaden.

In 2023 she was a fellow of the residency program at the Center for Literature - Burg Hülshoff Münster from May-June. Various publications in literary journals and anthologies, most recently in "Queer - nun reden wir" and "Parabolis Virtualis 2 - Neue, queere Lyrik". She is currently working on the completion of her second volume of poetry MUSH ROOM - Ein Pilzgespinst, in which she explores the fascinating world of mushrooms. In addition to her work as an author, she is co-initiator of the queer-feminist reading and discussion series [OHNE PRONOMEN] in Cologne.
