LOST BODIES – Urban Encoutners
Edan Gorlicki/INTER-ACTIONSHeidelberg

After experiencing the lock-down of cultural life, in LOST BODIES – URBAN ENCOUNTERS, dancers reinhabit diverse cultural locations in Heidelberg. In the time of closed theaters, clubs and studios, dance as a live experience became almost invisible. Now our bodies are back and charged and have a lot to offer. LOST BODIES – URBAN ENCOUNTERS is a three-day event that invites you to move with us through the city of Heidelberg on September 10, 11 and 12. You are invited to arrange your own routes freely, meet other people and discover dance again at the most under-visited cultural places in town.


Along the Neckar, through the old town or in more secluded areas? At the moment we are in communication with our location partners so that you can experience the perfect route. The schedule and venue plan can be bought from August 25 for 5 EUR at P11 Café Bar am Römerkreis.

Opening Vivian Greven

Vivian Greven is one of the most prolific young painters in Germany. Her works take their cue from representations of the ideal human form: As source material, she takes virtual reproductions of sculptures from Classicism, Baroque, and the Renaissance that reinstate concepts of beauty prevalent in classical antiquity. The figures she finds inhabit the canvas with glowing luminosity, coupling ancient greek ideas with contemporary digital aesthetics. Oscillating between different visual vocabulary, Vivian Greven’s paintings allure with an evocative, at times, even unsettling aura.

Concert: ›The Human Zodiac‹
in cooperation with KlangForum Heidelberg

Sidney Corbett: Utopie und Nähe (utopia and proximity), for 6 voices and violin solo, 2020
Hanna Eimermacher: Korva Wanturi, for 8 voices and installation, 2021
Michael Pelzel: Luna, for 8 voices and percussion, 2021

 

SCHOLA HEIDELBERG | ensemble aisthesis, violin solo: Nurit Stark
directed by: Ekkehard Windrich

 

There is no such thing as a ›human zodiac‹, but every image of the cosmos is also an image of the world. Sidney Corbett’s commissioned piece functions as a satellite for the first ›BIENNALE for New Music in the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region‹ taking place across Heidelberg, Mannheim and Ludwigshafen in June. The theme ›Concrete Utopias‹ paves the way for contemporary explorations of Ernst Bloch’s philosophy. All three commissioned works will premier the weekend of the 12th and 13th of June.

Nina E. Schönefeld: ›Dark Waters‹
2018, 15:55 m, HD-Video, Sound

 

Watch film!

 

Nina E. Schönefeld’s ›Dark Waters‹ (2018, 15:55 min) is set in the year 2029: All oceans are so contaminated by plastic waste that they have become so–called death zones. The only beings that can still live in them are poisonous jellyfish. The government is trying to hide this environmental disaster from the public. The film follows the helicopter pilot Silverocean, who embarks on a risky search for the truth.

›Dark Waters‹ is connected with the films ›Snow Fox‹ (2018,10:03min) and ›L.e.o.p.a.r.t.‹. (2019, 17:23 min) part of the series ›The Trilogy Of Tomorrow‹. The Trilogy links current political and ecological issues and tells stories about environmental activists who fight for political change, freedom of expression and the preservation of nature.

Tuomas A. Laitinen: ›Haemocyanin‹
2019, (8 min), UHD video, stereo sound

 

 

In ›Haemocyanin‹, the camera follows an octopus in an aquarium as it interacts with a glass sculpture created by the artist himself – penetrating its crevices, exploring its folds, inhabiting its transparent mass. The focus is on the interplay between the soft, flexible tentacles of the animal and the solid, translucent volumes of the sculpture. We observe the octopus familiarizing itself to the artificial environment through a set of limbic movements, which resemble a dancing language. It is through such a somatic exploration that the octopus grasps awareness and knowledge of the object.

Sky Hopinka: ›Maɬni – towards the ocean, towards the shore‹
2020, HD video, stereo, color

 

Sky Hopinka’s first feature-length film ›Maɬni – towards the ocean, towards the shore‹ is an ethno-poetic documentary portrait in two parts. Set against the backdrop of the landscape of the Columbia River Basin, the film follows the wanderings of two friends of the artist, Sweetwater Sahme and Jordan Mercier, along their separate paths through death, rebirth and afterlife. The protagonists constantly tap into the Chinook mythical lore to articulate their personal stories and define their identities. To further authenticate Sweetwater and Jordan’s bond with their native land, the interviews are conducted in Chinuk Wawa, a nearly extinct indigenous language of the Lower Columbia River Basin that once served as the creole lingua-franca in the region.

Tabita Rezaire: ›Deep Down Tidal‹
2017, 19 min

 

 

›Deep Down Tidal‹ builds a computer-generated moving world of colorful images that weave together cosmological, spiritual, political and technological tales about water as a transoceanic communication-network. The Internet is not floating in the clouds, but located on the ocean floor. It manifests in the form of kilometers of fiber optic cables that follow the routes of colonial slave trade. By insisting on this argument, Tabita Rezaire breaks with the perpetuated rhetoric of wireless communication and decentralized networks. Her focus is on the fact that communicating digitally does not mean uncoupling oneself from material conditions and effects. The Internet is based on colonialism and thus affects both geographical and physical aspects. 

The water of the world’s oceans in ›Deep Down Tidal‹ is a data carrier – a place of diverse traumas and embodiment of colonial technologies that exposes the alleged inclusiveness of the Internet as a myth; at the same time, water is examined for its spiritual properties as a possible means of healing.

Karrabing Film Collective: ›The Mermaids, or Aiden in Wonderland‹
2018, 26 min

The futuristic film ›The Mermaids, or Aiden in Wonderland‹ (2018) presents us with a dystopian scenario in which the Australian land appears dead and barren as an effect of the ravages of capitalism; unlike the local population, Europeans settlers are no longer able to survive outdoors. The protagonist is a young indigenous man, Aidan, who had been snatched from his family as a baby to serve a medical experiment meant to save the white population. Once released, he travels the landscape of his ancestors in company of his father and brother; here, he is confronted with two possible versions of the future and the past.

Ursula Biemann: ›Acoustic Ocean‹
2018, 4K video, 18 min

 

Located on the Lofoten Islands in Northern Norway, ›Acoustic Ocean‹ sets out to explore the sonic ecology of marine life. The scientist as an explorer and important mediator of the contemporary understanding of our planetary ecosystems is a central figure in this video. She makes her appearance in the person of a Sami (indigenous of northern Scandinavia) biologist-diver who is using all sorts of hydrophones, parabolic mics and recording devices. Her task is to sense the submarine space for acoustic and other biological forms of expression.

Sonia Levy: ›For The Love Of Corals‹
2018, 2–chanell film

 

Kindly supported by ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medien Karlsruhe

The project ›For the Love of Corals: An Ecology of Perhaps‹ invites to navigate virtually through Sonia Levy’s 2–channel installation ›For the Love of Corals‹. The project was adapted for the digital realm as part of ZKM’s exhibition ›Critical Zones‹, which invites to engage with the critical situation of the Earth in a variety of ways and to explore new modes of coexistence between all forms of life.

›For the Love of Corals‹ is a cinematic inquiry that focuses on the daily labour of caring for endangered beings to resuscitate them from their imminent human-induced extinction. The 2-channel installation documents the research project ›Project Coral‹ initiated by Jamie Craggs: In the basement of the Horniman Museum and Gardens in London a team of marine biologists and aquarists led by him have initiated a pioneering endeavour to breed corals in captivity. By mirroring the environmental circumstances – seasonal temperature changes, solar irradiance and lunar cycles – of the Great Barrier Reef within specially designed tanks, the team has become the first in the world to successfully spawn corals in a laboratory.

Tuomas A. Laitinen: ›Haemocyanin‹
2019, (8 min), UHD video, stereo sound

In ›Haemocyanin‹, the camera follows an octopus in an aquarium as it interacts with a glass sculpture created by the artist himself – penetrating its crevices, exploring its folds, inhabiting its transparent mass. The focus is on the interplay between the soft, flexible tentacles of the animal and the solid, translucent volumes of the sculpture. We observe the octopus familiarizing itself to the artificial environment through a set of limbic movements, which resemble a dancing language. It is through such a somatic exploration that the octopus grasps awareness and knowledge of the object.

Sky Hopinka: ›Maɬni – towards the ocean, towards the shore‹
2020, HD video, stereo, color

 

Sky Hopinka’s first feature-length film ›Maɬni – towards the ocean, towards the shore‹ is an ethno-poetic documentary portrait in two parts. Set against the backdrop of the landscape of the Columbia River Basin, the film follows the wanderings of two friends of the artist, Sweetwater Sahme and Jordan Mercier, along their separate paths through death, rebirth and afterlife. The protagonists constantly tap into the Chinook mythical lore to articulate their personal stories and define their identities. To further authenticate Sweetwater and Jordan’s bond with their native land, the interviews are conducted in Chinuk Wawa, a nearly extinct indigenous language of the Lower Columbia River Basin that once served as the creole lingua-franca in the region.

Tabita Rezaire: ›Deep Down Tidal‹
2017, 19 min

 

 

›Deep Down Tidal‹ builds a computer-generated moving world of colorful images that weave together cosmological, spiritual, political and technological tales about water as a transoceanic communication-network. The Internet is not floating in the clouds, but located on the ocean floor. It manifests in the form of kilometers of fiber optic cables that follow the routes of colonial slave trade. By insisting on this argument, Tabita Rezaire breaks with the perpetuated rhetoric of wireless communication and decentralized networks. Her focus is on the fact that communicating digitally does not mean uncoupling oneself from material conditions and effects. The Internet is based on colonialism and thus affects both geographical and physical aspects. 

The water of the world’s oceans in ›Deep Down Tidal‹ is a data carrier – a place of diverse traumas and embodiment of colonial technologies that exposes the alleged inclusiveness of the Internet as a myth; at the same time, water is examined for its spiritual properties as a possible means of healing.

Karrabing Film Collective: ›The Mermaids, or Aiden in Wonderland‹
2018, 26 min

The futuristic film ›The Mermaids, or Aiden in Wonderland‹ (2018) presents us with a dystopian scenario in which the Australian land appears dead and barren as an effect of the ravages of capitalism; unlike the local population, Europeans settlers are no longer able to survive outdoors. The protagonist is a young indigenous man, Aidan, who had been snatched from his family as a baby to serve a medical experiment meant to save the white population. Once released, he travels the landscape of his ancestors in company of his father and brother; here, he is confronted with two possible versions of the future and the past.

Located on the Lofoten Islands in Northern Norway, ›Acoustic Ocean‹ sets out to explore the sonic ecology of marine life. The scientist as an explorer and important mediator of the contemporary understanding of our planetary ecosystems is a central figure in this video. She makes her appearance in the person of a Sami (indigenous of northern Scandinavia) biologist-diver who is using all sorts of hydrophones, parabolic mics and recording devices. Her task is to sense the submarine space for acoustic and other biological forms of expression.

Sonia Levy: ›For The Love Of Corals‹
2018, 2–chanell film

 

Kindly supported by ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medien Karlsruhe

The project ›For the Love of Corals: An Ecology of Perhaps‹ invites to navigate virtually through Sonia Levy’s 2–channel installation ›For the Love of Corals‹. The project was adapted for the digital realm as part of ZKM’s exhibition ›Critical Zones‹, which invites to engage with the critical situation of the Earth in a variety of ways and to explore new modes of coexistence between all forms of life.

›For the Love of Corals‹ is a cinematic inquiry that focuses on the daily labour of caring for endangered beings to resuscitate them from their imminent human-induced extinction. The 2-channel installation documents the research project ›Project Coral‹ initiated by Jamie Craggs: In the basement of the Horniman Museum and Gardens in London a team of marine biologists and aquarists led by him have initiated a pioneering endeavour to breed corals in captivity. By mirroring the environmental circumstances – seasonal temperature changes, solar irradiance and lunar cycles – of the Great Barrier Reef within specially designed tanks, the team has become the first in the world to successfully spawn corals in a laboratory.

Tuomas A. Laitinen beobachtet in seinem Film einen Oktopus in einem Aquarium. Der Krake interagiert mit einer von dem finnischen Künstler geschaffenen Glasskulptur, dringt in ihre Spalten ein, erforscht ihre Zwischenräume, bewohnt ihre transparente Masse. Im Mittelpunkt steht das Wechselspiel zwischen den weichen, flexiblen Tentakeln des Tieres und dem festen, transparenten Volumen der Skulptur.
Für Laitinen erzeugt die Interaktion zwischen Krake und Objekt eine spezifische Kommunikation: eine tanzende Sprache.

Der futuristische Film ›The Mermaids, or Aiden in Wonderland‹ (2018) präsentiert uns ein dystopisches Szenario, in dem das australische Land als Folge der Verwüstungen durch den Kapitalismus tot und unfruchtbar erscheint und die europäischen Siedler nicht mehr in der Lage sind, im Freien zu überleben. Der Protagonist ist ein junger Ureinwohner, Aidan, der als Baby seiner Familie entrissen wurde, um einem medizinischen Experiment zur Rettung der weißen Bevölkerung zu dienen. Nach seiner Freilassung wandert er in Begleitung seines Vaters und seines Bruders durch die Landschaft seiner Vorfahren; hier wird er mit zwei möglichen Versionen der Zukunft und der Vergangenheit konfrontiert. Der Film nimmt aus der Perspektive der australischen Ureinwohner Stellung zu aktuellen Debatten über die Auswirkungen des Klimawandels, des Kapitalismus und der Industrie.

Ursula Biemann: ›Acoustic Ocean‹
2018, 4K video, 18 min


 

›Acoustic Ocean‹ ist eine Science-Fiction, eine fiktionale Untersuchung der Unterwasserwelt als ein Raum, in dem maritimes Leben, Menschen, technologische Infrastrukturen, wissenschaftliche Instrumente und Klima zusammentreffen und in komplexen Prozessen aufeinander wirken.

Im Video erkundet die Protagonistin den maritimen Lebens- und Kommunikationsraum der norwegischen Lofoten Inseln. Als Wissenschaftlerin hat sie die wichtige Aufgabe, unser planetares Ökosystem zu erforschen und aufzuzeichnen. Sie ist eine Sami, also eine Indigene des Nordens, Taucherin und Meeresbiologin, die Hydrophone, Parabolmikrofone und andere Aufnahmegeräte benutzt, um den lichtlosen submarinen Raum und seine Lebewesen zu erfassen. Die sensorischen Apparate stellen eine techno-organische Verbindung zwischen ihrem Körper und den unzähligen Meeresbewohnern her. In dieser fiktionalen Wissenschaftsmatrix existiert keine analytische Distanz zwischen der Forscherin, ihrem Untersuchungsobjekt und ihren Instrumenten – sie alle sind eins.

Das Projekt ›For the Love of Corals: An Ecology of Perhaps‹ ist die virtuelle Adaption von Sonia Levys 2-Kanal-Installation ›For the Love of Corals‹, die im Rahmen der Ausstellung ›Critical Zones‹ im Zentrum für Kunst und Medien Karlsruhe für den digitalen Bereich produziert wurde. ›Critical Zones‹ lädt dazu ein, sich auf vielfältige Weise mit der kritischen Situation der Erde auseinanderzusetzen und neue Formen des Zusammenlebens aller Lebensformen zu erforschen.

 

›For the Love of Corals‹ widmet sich Möglichkeiten zur Rettung vom Aussterben gefährdeter Arten. Die 2-Kanal-Installation dokumentiert das von Jamie Craggs initiierte Forschungsprojekt ›Project Coral‹, das im Untergeschoss des Horniman Museum and Gardens in London die Züchtung von Korallen im Labor zum ersten Mal weltweit realisieren konnte. Durch die Simulation der Umweltbedingungen des Great Barrier Reefs – Temperaturschwankungen, Sonneneinstrahlung und Mond–Zyklen – gelang der Durchbruch, der es ermöglicht, die Auswirkungen von Klimawandel, Überfischung und Umweltverschmutzung zu untersuchen und zur Wiederherstellung der Riffe beizutragen.

International Symposium: Art | Literature | City.
On the Relationship between the Humanities and the Public Sphere
Once a semester, the Stadt-Heidelberg-Stiftung in cooperation with the International Science Forum Heidelberg offers funds for the organisation of a summer symposium, which is intended to promote the exchange between university and public. The Summer Symposium 2020 will take place from July 20 to 21 and is entitled ‘Art | Literature | City. On the Relationship between the Humanities and the Public Sphere’. It will focus on the question of the relevance of knowledge produced by art and especially literature studies for the (urban) public.
A public panel discussion at the Kunstverein Heidelberg will be the core of the symposium:
On July 20, 2020 scientists, participants and their representatives of the public cultural life of the city will discuss the question: What can, should, and want literatures and arts in their city?
Dr. Dr. Florian Arnold (Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart), Prof. Dr. Eva Geulen (Leibniz-Zentrum für Literatur- und Kulturforschung, Berlin), Prof. Dr. Gerhard Poppenberg (Romanisches Seminar) and PD Dr. Oliver Schlaudt (Philosophisches Seminar/Sciences Po Paris), among others, have been invited to participate in the symposium.

Pedro Kadivar: Reading and Discussion
Ticket 8 €, reduces und dfk-member 5 €

Reading and discussion in German
Moderation: Regina Keil-Sagawe
›Paris was the place where my mother tongue gradually burst, as if by an explosion, in slow motion.‹ Born in 1967 in Shiraz (Iran), Pedro Kadivar fled to France at the age of 16, changed his mother tongue and name, no longer felt foreign enough in Paris after graduating from high school and studying. In 1996, after a formative encounter with Heiner Müller, he moved on to Berlin, where he wrote his doctoral thesis on Marcel Proust, in which he discovered an affinity. Today, Pedro Kadivar lives and works as a writer and director in Paris and Berlin and stages highly acclaimed plays.
In ›Kleines Buch der Migrationen‹ (›Small Book of Migrations‹) he narrates the break with the language of the country he wanted to forget because it was marked by so much violence. He reflects on home and foreignness, on the significance of migration for artistic creation, and in doing so repeatedly brings other artists and writers into play, such as Marcel Proust, Beckett, Dürer or the Iranian poet Sadeq Hedayat.

In a practical part, you will test how to approach existing image material and reinterpret with it.

with Diana Frasek and Eyal Pinkas

 

Artists from the exhibition work with photographs from the press archives, which are supposed to depict the events realistically. But even at the moment of shooting, camera settings and the choice of perspective can result in different image statements about the events. Strategies of image manipulation developed by Eyal Pinkas (artist) and Diana Frasek (art educator / teacher) are tried out in this workshop. The photos will be taken with a camera or cell phone that you have brought.
Cost: 2 euros

Concert from KlangForum Heidelberg ›Sternbild: Mensch IV‹
the KlangForum Heidelberg is guesting in Heidelberger Kunstverein again

›Sternbild Mensch VI ‹

First performance

 

Conductor: Walter Nußbaum

 

As always the stars were the inspiration source for human imagination, for spiritual experience, the idea of ​​the infinity and thus become representations of superhuman or divinity. Arnold Schönberg’s sense of the “air from other planets” (Stefan George) with his ears (!) started the 20th century in music as a synaesthetic conjuration and poetic-imaginative premonition of new worlds and a new cosmos, but soon the theory of relativity, Quantum mechanics, wave theory, statistics and big data also significantly shape artistic conceptions and speculations.
“Sternbild: Mensch” IV to VI is the continuation of a six-part series of events on the subject of musical cosmology that would only be incompletely described with “concert”. The two ensembles of the KlangForum Heidelberg, the SCHOLA HEIDELBERG and the ensemble aisthesis, lead the close connection between vocal and instrumental sound generation under the direction of Walter Nußbaum, as well as the integration of spatial tonality and visual representation before the eyes and ears. A combination of incomprehensible, poetically spoken: “unearthly” connections – that is what the project “Constellation: Man” stands for.
The KlangForum Heidelberg awards composition commissions to well-known international composers for the continuation of the concert series “Sternbild: Mensch”; Only the special framework of this series allows them to artistically implement astronomical-cosmic questions and phenomena beyond the limitations of traditional concert platforms. For the fourth part of the concert series “Sternbild: Mensch”, Johannes Schöllhorn (composition professor in Freiburg), Mannheim-based Claus-Steffen Mahnkopf (professor at the Leipzig Academy of Music) and the Austrian composer Klaus Lang composed works specially commissioned for the concert series, which are all related to the cosmos. Lang takes the view that music is time-made audibility, which is an acoustically exciting approach with regard to the cosmos and the time, past, metaphorically expressed in the stars. In his composition, Schöllhorn treats the (only apparent) contrast between “light” and “dark”, which on closer inspection turns out to be a flow. This is based on three small sections of text from the beginning of Sor Juana’s “primero sueño”. Mahnkopf’s composition is dominated by the astrophysical moment: scientific texts are reformulated, background noise, black holes and Ekpyrosis are only a small part of the topics covered.

Filmscreening ›Into Eternity‹ with director Michael Madsen and curator Miya Yoshida

 

 

The documentary film ›Into Eternity‹ follows the construction of the nuclear waste repository Onkalo (›Hideout‹) in Finland. It is built 4 km deep into the solid ground and is meant to be a nuclear waste repository for the next 10o.ooo years. Since there is no building that has ever lasted such a long time, the movie strives to answer the question of how safe Onkalo can possibly be.

Danish director Michael Madsen contrasts the reality of the enormous demand for energy of industrial nations on one side and questions about responsible interactions with our environment on the other. He further adresses our responsibilty as a society towards the generations that will come after us.

 

The documentary will be shown as part of the exhibtion ›Sharing as caring 6‹. Afterwards there will be an open discussion with director Michael Madsen and curator Dr. Miya Yoshida in english.

 

 

 

With the support of the Danish Art Foundation. In cooperation with  Karlstorkino Heidelberg.

Lecture: ›Raumblüte‹, Correalismus und magische Architektur. Friedrich Kieslers Gedankenräume der 1940er Jahre
Gerd Zillner, Austrian Friedrich und Lillian Kiesler-Privatstiftung

 

 

 

 

During the 1940s austrian-american architect, stage designer, artist and theoretist Friedrich Kiesler (1890-1965) worked on two ambitious projects in the form of books: Correalism and Biotechnique, dealing with his holistic, human-centric design strategies and Magic Architecture, a ‘history of human living habitations’, which summarizes his extensive research concerning the topics of paleo-archeology, cultural anthropology, human and animal psychology, biology and natural history. Finally both books were never completed and remained unpublished. But  they opened up headspaces which manifest in the exhibition rooms he created.

 

Gerd Zillner is an art historian. He has been working as an archivar, curator and senior researcher for the Friedrich und Lillian Kiesler-Privatstiftung in Vienna since 2008. One of his many works about Kiesler is ›Friedrich Kiesler: Architekt, Künstler, Visionär‹ (2017).

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.
