In Performance: Reading Of The Graphic Novel, Berlin — Geteilte Stadt (Berlin)

 

(English)Today isn’t just any ordinary Monday—it’s also the 51st anniversary of the construction of the Berlin Wall. To mark the sombre occasion, Mitte’s newest bookstore (that’s “not just a bookstore”), ocelot, has invited the author-illustrators of “Berlin — Geteilte Stadt” for a presentation and reading. The newly published documentary graphic novel uses the comic book format to creatively tell stories of everyday life in a divided city.

(German) Heute ist nicht einfach irgendein Montag, heute ist der 51. Jahrestag des Mauerbaus. Zum Gedenken an dieses düstere Kapitel deutsch-deutscher Geschichte hat die Buchhandlung ocelot in Mitte (Slogan: „not just another bookstore”) die beiden Autoren und Illustratoren des dokumentarischen Comics „Berlin — Geteilte Stadt” für eine Buchpräsentation gewinnen können. Die gerade erschienene Graphic Novel erzählt Alltagsgeschichten einer geteilten Stadt.
