Wu Ming – »UFO 78« and the Art of Collective Writing

German Book Premiere

1978: Former Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro is kidnapped and murdered. Italy competes for third place at the soccer World Cup in Argentina under the military dictatorship. The Vatican records a year with three popes. Meanwhile, UFO sightings are on the rise … The Wu Ming writers’ collective is back with an »extremely idiosyncratic but simply brilliant book between pop culture, anti-fascism, communism and the longing for an extraterrestrial presence« (Neues Deutschland).

Read by Benito Bause

In cooperation with the Cluster of Excellence »Temporal Communities: Doing Literature in a Global Perspective« at Freie Universität Berlin
