Film Bar: Heidelbergerer Stückemarkt ›Pizzas for the People‹
Bar, Fimscreening and Artist Talk

To kick off the Theater Festival Heidelberger Stückenmarkt with the host country Southcorea, we will show, in cooperation with the Heidelberg orchester and theater, the movie ›Pizzas for the People‹ (60 min., 2009) of the southcorean artist, designer and filmmaker Hwang Kim (*1980).

Kim Jong-II loves pizza and decide to open in 2009 an Italian restaurant despite the political and cultural isolation of Northcorea. Only the political elite is allowed to eat in that restaurant. To open up the restaurant to everybody, Hwang Kim decides to produce a satirical fiction documentary. In ›Pizzas for the People‹ he shows how to make pizza in his own kitchen and more. To allow his movie to be seen by the northcorean people, Hwang Kin smuggled the DVD to Northcorea thorough China and had it to be sold on the black market.

At the end of the screening there will be a discussion with the artist and cocktails at the bar blau.

›Death of Street Photography or Death of the Right on One’s Own Photo?’ Panel Discussion

Panel held in German.

What about photographing strangers in public? Are there any rights to protect individuals from being photographed without their permission?  Are the laws applied to the ›Street photography‹ different from the ones applied to snapshots of private individuals? The topic of this event will be the question, how the conflicting interests of undisturbed art practice and the protection of privacy in a digital society can be effectively taken into account. Here the well-known representatives from jurisprudence, advocacy and art will express their opinions.

Shumona Sinha Reading cancelled
Shumona Sinha introduces her new book ›Stateless‹

Due to illness the reading was unfortunately cancelled

Reading / Excerpts: Shumona Sinha (French)
Translation: Thomas Städtler (German)
Moderation: Erika Mursa
Shumona Sinha was one of the highlights of the ›Heidelberg Literature Festival 2017‹. In the Heidelberger Kunstverein she presents her latest book, which comes out in September 2017 in Edition Nautilus.

 

In strong images the author writes about three women, who face a ruthless regime – in Paris as well as in Calcutta. They are uprooted, homeless, never quite at home in a society where women and newcomers have it especially hard. In the current age, shaped by growing distrust, fear, and even hatred, the ›Stateless‹ is an important and unique literary voice.

 

Shumona Sinha, born 1973 in Calcutta, has lived in Paris since 2001. For her novel ›Let’s Beat Up the Poor!‹ (2015) she received i.a. the International Literature Prize of the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin. Her third novel Calcutta (2016) has also won several prizes, including the Prix du Rayonnement de la langue et de la littérature française of the Académie française and the Grand Prix du Roman de la Société des gens de lettres.

 

An event of the institution for German-French cultures in cooperation with the Heidelberger Kunstverein.

Ingo Schulze reads ›Peter Holtz‹
In cooperation with ›Allerorts: Literatur!‹

Reading in German.

Ingo Schulze is one of the most renowned German authors of his generation. His debut, ›33 Moments of Happiness‹ (1995), was met with enthusiasm; some of the stories from the book were published in the New Yorker. ›Simple Stories‹ (1998) was a spectacular success and has become a book read schools. He was awarded the Leipzig Book Fair Prize for ›Handy‹ (2007), and the Joseph Breitbach Prize for ›Neue Leben‹ (2005). His work has been translated into more than 30 languages. A new novel ›Peter Holtz. Sein glückliches Leben erzählt von ihm selbst‹ – written down and prepared for printing by Ingo Schulze, comes out in early September.

 

About the book:
Peter Holtz dreams about happiness for everyone. Even as a child, he practices the abolition of money, contrives punk out of the spirit of the working-class songs, and converts himself to christianity. As a CDU member (East), he fights for the christian-communist democracy. However, he wonders: the flow of the world contradicts all logic. His selflessness only enriches the market economy. Has he fought for the wrong side? Or for the right, but in a wrong way? And above all: how will he get rid of the money with decency? Peter Holtz challenges the promises of capitalism. With wit and poetry, Ingo Schulze creates a character who has not yet existed, and whom we need today: in times when the world turns upside down. From an orphan to a millionaire. What could go wrong?

 

As part of ›Allerorts: Literatur!‹, a new initiative by the Karlstorbahnhof started in the beginning of 2016 and supported by numerous sponsors, writers present their works at diverse venues of the city. Literature goes on a trip – to new thoughts and places. It brings language to the exciting places in the city and invites you to explore the promising shores of the literary city of Heidelberg.

 

The evening is moderated by Beatrice Faßbender.
