It’s better not to see them being made* – An evening dedicated to sausages, with Annette Frier and Dietmar Bär


No late admission - the ship will depart!

Otto von Bismarck said: “Laws are like sausages; it’s better not to see them being made.” The sausage is an important literary subject – nearly as common as fraternal quarrels or adultery! And all kinds of German-speaking authors – from Goethe to Elfriede Jelinek, from Theodor Fontane to Wiglaf Droste – have links to links.
Sausages touch on great human themes: greed, disgust, sexuality, desire, murderousness, hope and vanity. Sausages can make you crazy or happy, they can be funny but also scary or tragic. Sausages are philosophical and profane in equal measure. Both universal and provincial. This evening Annette Frier and Dietmar Bär talk about the invention of the curry sausage, about socialist sausages, about butchers and eaters and about – wait for it! – sausage jewelry! Who could possibly resist? Dear carnivores, vegetarians, literature lovers, sausage connoisseurs and haters, you are all invited! Because, for better or
wurst*, sausage is one of the cornerstones of German culture. Text: Sophie Nikolitsch
