Live is(n’t) Art. Film is Art. Score Music is Art.

Best-selling author and kolumnist Wladimir Kaminer is giving a reading about his most recent book „Das Leben ist (k)eine Kunst“ (in English: „Live Is(n’t) Art“) at Kulturhaus Keitum this Friday, August 14th 2015! Amongst Wladimir’s greatest works were the short story series „Russendisko“ which were originally published in the year 2000 and picturized later by Oliver Ziegenbalg, Arthur Cohn and Christoph Hahnheiser. The score music was composed and produced by Lars Löhn, who received great criticism by the German newspaper „Frankfurter Allgemeine“ for instance, who wrote that “ (…) the authentic soundtrack was particularly persuasive.“

With this being said, we are excited to find out what Wladimir’s most recent work is about and we urge you to not miss this event, in case you are spending this year’s holiday on the beautiful island of Sylt.
