Ricardo Romero: Big Rip

»New Weird« literature from Argentina: Two lonely men, a tattoo artist and a postal worker, witness the collapse of the world they knew. Reality seems like damaged software: the horizon is pixelated, people fragment, and the city grows out like a flesh-eating flower. This groundbreaking novel is an attempt to capture the complexity of a world that is collapsing before our eyes.

Read by Matthias Scherwenikas.

Hosted by Hernán D. Caro.

The event will be in Spanish and German.
