Reading "The Aesthetics of Resistance"

Part of the festival “The Aesthetics of Resistance – Peter Weiss 100”


Daily 29.9.-8.10. (except 3.10.) / HAU2 

“The Aesthetics of Resistance” is a resistant novel. Resistant to the one-sided narrative of history, resistant to elitist hegemonies of art narratives, resistant to forgetting and to political deadlock. In a space designed by the artist duo AlexandLiane, the trilogy of novels will be rediscovered with the help of the audience in a reading over several days.

The reading will be in German.
