The Novel of the year "Die Hauptstadt" by Robert Menasse - Reading of the entire book
15.11
main stage

In cooperation with the German Book Prize, Suhrkamp publishers and the rbb kulturradio, radioeins and Stilbruch, the cultural magazine by rbb, Volksbühne Berlin invites you to a complete reading of the German Book Prize novel of 2017 Die Hauptstadt (The Capital) by Robert Menasse.

Along with the author Robert Menasse, actors Frank Arnold, Lutz Blochberger, Jens-Uwe Bogadtke, Andreas Hoppe, Joachim Król, Christin Nichols, Silvia Rieger, Ludmila Skripkina, Jeanette Spassova, Anna Maria Sturm, Anne Tismer and others will read. The duration is estimated between 16 and 17 hours.

Die Hauptstadt is a European period novel. In honour of "50 years EU commission", a jubilee project is being prepared in Brussels to polish the tarnished image of the commission. Menasse designs and shapes his cleverly arranged story around these preparations, leaving no room for coincidence.

The rbb kulturradio, radioeins and rbb online will live stream the reading.

The German "novel of the year" is chosen and awarded the German Book Prize by the Börsenverein des Deutschen Buchhandels Stiftung every year at the start of the Frankfurt book fair. It's aim is to garner attention for German literature beyond country borders and to increase attention for books and readings. Publishers can apply with their current titles or manuscripts. The seven jury members change annually and first create a long list and late a short list. The German Book Prize was awarded on the 9th October 2017.
