Literature is a manufacture of meanings, an innovative praxis of reflecting and modelling the complicated inner world of contemporary human being. It is preconditioned with freedom of creative endeavour as well as with involvement in unlimited dialogue of persons and cultures.
Our mission is to assist the authors sharing these values in reaching each other and their readers through collaborative work on translations and multilingual books. We are especially concerned in Russian literature that is expected to survive hodiernal political disaster and pave the way to post-totalitarian future.
Literature Without Borders is a successor project for Vavilon/ARGO-RISK, the organizational hub for the newest innovative Russian literature, active in Moscow from 1989 and resposnible for more than 400 published books, dozens of literary festival and hundreds of events. Since 2015 we work in Latvia.
