Rem Broo: Beethoven, Felix Pestemer: In the Eye of the Beholder
Lesung I internationales literaturfestival berlin
REM BROO [ROMANIA/ D]: BEETHOVEN
On the occasion of his 250th birthday in 2020, this graphic novel is dedicated to the life of Ludwig van Beethoven. Through the eyes of visitors at his deathbed, the anecdotes paint a dazzling portrait of the composer and his contemporaries. The drawings follow their very own style, sometimes brightly colored, sometimes sketchy — »a brilliantly illustrated dark comedy« [DLF].
FELIX PESTEMER [D]: IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER
Paula and Remo visit the Alte Nationalgalerie in Berlin with their grandfather Ferdinand. In front of paintings by Caspar David Friedrich, Arnold Böcklin, and Adolph Menzel, they engage in conversation: what associations do the works trigger? And what does one know about their creation? »Felix Pestemer tells his stories with pen and brush and he is a master at it.« [rbbKultur]
The event is held in English.
