Robert Menasse and Die Hauptstadt
A literary evening with Robert Menasse, Geert van Istendael and Karel De Gucht
Well-known Austrian writer Robert Menasse presents Die Hauptstadt, a brilliant novel set in Brussels, partly written during a residency at Passa Porta. A story brimming with colourful characters and strange machinations, but also a satire of the European Commission’s back rooms and a critique of new forms of nationalism.
Robert Menasse will read an excerpt from the novel and have a discussion with fellow-writer Geert van Istendael and Belgian politician Karel De Gucht.
