Literary - Musical tea salon for adults
When authors from Turkey, who have lived in Germany for years, are honored with the highest German literature and film prizes for their essays, poems and novels, their screenplays and films, then they are not just token Turks who let us pat each other on the back and confirm the success of integration. They have long belonged to a self confident literary scene that it is so productive and prolific precisely because it has never bowed down to some postulated German leitkultur.
admission: € 5/ 3
