What do Till Lindemann, Keith Richards, Patti Smith, David Bowie, Nick Cave, Sven Regener, Miley Cyrus, Leonard Cohen and Suzi Quatro have in common? Writing. And, no, not songwriting! They write books. They are novelists, poets and chroniclers. In 2017, a committee in Oslo decided to award the Nobel Prize for Literature to a certain Bob Dylan. Conversely, writers often like to pick up a guitar (Stephen King), musicians appear on film (Lady Gaga), and actors excel as authors (Matthias Brandt). Why do artists like to break out of creative silos? Is it even possible to spread around one’s creativity? Why is it difficult in Germany for us to accept artists who reject pigeonholing, while in America it is considered perfectly normal for actors to sing and dance as well? Frank Schätzing and Mieze Katz, the lead singer of MIA, will switch from one genre to the next all evening long. With book excerpts and song lyrics from famous multitalented creatives and live songs from Schätzing’s band TAXI GALAXI.
