Stuff for the Shutdown

Digital vernissage with lyrics and electronic music from now for now

when certainties are lacking, literature is all the more important: stories and reflections — mental detours that make you forget that your daily routes only lead from the kitchen to the bathroom and back. the result is a booklet with texts by 30 authors. now they are read, spread over two evenings, by two actors and a musician. from the abandoned hall of the neumarkt — improvised live on
