Vernissage and staged reading
On 18th March 2019 German author Christa Wolf would have turned 90.
Lead by Birgit Dahlke (professor of Literary Studies at Humboldt University and head of the Christa and Gerhard Wolf Private Library Research Center), students of the Humboldt University discovered exciting motives in Christa Wolf's oeuvre that transcend time and space. Based on this work and together with graphic designer Martin Hoffmann they put up a surprising exhibition: Texts meet graphics, and Christa Wolf's poetic language takes on new forms.

Literally Speaking is Berlin's fiction reading series that features local writers and the authors who inspire their stories. Each month, five writers share their original work, as well as an excerpt from an author of their choice that highlights the month’s theme. The excerpts aim to get everyone in Berlin’s literary community “on the same page.” It’s a way to see what’s catalyzing our local writers and bring us closer together through literature.
Doors open at 7:30 pm
Reading starts at 8:00 pm
