Christian Saehrendt: "The Radical Absence of Ronny Läpplinger" :: Art historian Dr. phil. Christian Saehrendt reads from his first novel "The Radical Absence of Ronny Läpplinger", treating a perennially contemporary problematic area in artistic production, namely, the question of success and failure, of happiness and unhappiness in the life of an artist. The story relates of how an artist, following a promising beginning in the international art business, is all of a sudden ignored; until he contrives to break out of his identity crisis as a prelude to celebrating his comeback at the dOCUMENTA 13. The reading is held in German. ⁄⁄ more
