“Radar” is an international literary magazine published in German, Polish and Ukrainian at Villa Decius from 2010 to 2014. The idea behind “Radar” was to create a common space for dialogue for writers from different parts of Europe doing their literary residencies at Villa Decius. Through the topics covered in its pages, ‘Radar’ witnessed many historical events important for these countries, but also in a broader perspective for Europe as a whole. The magazine’s innovative trilingual form was aimed in particular at presenting a tripartite perspective on experiences shared by Poles, Germans and Ukrainians. Nine years after the last issue of “Radar” was published, we decided to prepare a unique trilingual (Polish-Ukrainian-German) publication, which refers to the previous issues of “Radar” published between 2010 and 2014. For the pages of the new issue, we invited people who created “Radar” years ago: authors and actresses, translators and interpreters, scholarship holders and grantees of Villa Decius. The special issue of Radar was published on 17 January 2023 thanks to financial support from the Stabilisation Fund for Culture and Education of the German Federal Foreign Office and the Goethe-Institut.
