“I’m a bookworm!” An evening with Alexander Kluge. For his 90th birthday. With readings, films and Svenja Flaßpöhler


“All my works, whether books or films, have a solid core. That core is the answer to my inner voice, and it responds to the reality that surrounds me. But in the 60 years that I’ve been working as an author, that reality has advanced in leaps and bounds. So the core often changes both its color and its form. All the way through to my latest books, Das Buch der Kommentare [“The Book of Commentaries”], Zirkus / Kommentar [“Circus / Commentary”] and Schramme am Himmel [“Scratches in the Sky”] (with Jonathan Meese). I look forward to reading and debating with Svenja Flaßpöhler (“Sore Subjects”). We’ll start with “The Book of Commentaries” and there will also be films and music. ‘Philosophizing is for people what digging is for moles’, to quote the title of an essay in “Philosophie” magazine (special edition on critical theory). I feel like the poet laureate of this Frankfurt theory. You can also vary the statement: ‘Singing and storytelling are for people what digging is for moles.’” Alexander Kluge
