Johannes Jansen Biography

Johannes Jansen (6. 1. 1966 in Berlin, GDR) grew up in Freiburg, Leipzig and Berlin-Pankow. He lives in Berlin as author and pedagogue.

Jansen is one of the most remarkable voices of his generation. His very short prose texts have a somnambulant quality and are characterized by expressivity and onomatopoeic finesse. In his texts, reception and reflection constitute a non-detachably unity.
