Exile and Marginality. A Possible Re-Thinking of Romanian Exiles
The paper attempts to identify some of the motivations of exile in the case of Romanian writers and painters of Jewish or German origin during the 20th century, and to assess the possibilities of their artistic assimilation into the European or world culture, according to the strategies and modes of creative discourse: from the experimental character of the avant-garde to the apparently aestheticizing forms having opposed the official discourses of the communist regime.
Keywords: contemporary Romanian literature, exile, communism, experimentalism, adoptive cultures.
