Festival LiteraTurm


LiteraTurm is a concept festival with a clear theme. Its programme kaleidoscopically collates a leitmotif of contemporary German language literature. In 2006, the motto “The Poetry of Knowledge” focused on the relationship between literature and science, whereas “past compressed” in 2008 was a pageant of narrated time stories. “radically present” in 2010 will look at literary portrayals of the present day. LiteraTurm is seen as a discursive festival intended to stimulate debate on contemporary literature and other sectors such as culture and natural sciences.

A pavilion designed by the architects schneider + schumacher is situated as information exchange outside the central Municipal Library.
