Under the following title and the joint roof of Traduki, the diverse and intricate literary landscape of Southeast Europe presents itself between 2020 and 2022 at the Leipzig Book Fair. It is Traduki's biggest and most ambitious project since its inception in 2008. Additionally, other events at different book fairs form part of this endeavour as well as the Balkan Film Week and a host of video and podcast series available online.
