Axel Hacke


liest und erzählt

Mousonturm Saal bestuhlt


Axel Hacke’s readings are one-of-a-kind; no two evenings are the same. It’s not just someone sitting behind a table with a glass of water and a lamp and reading from a book as usual, no, Hacke talks about life, talks about his work and has (almost) everything on hand that he has written in his life: Thousands of essays from Süddeutsche Zeitung magazine, including the current ones of the past months, a stack of books – for example, the very funny menus of Colonel von Huhn or the cheerful-philosophical “The Days I Spent with God”. And of course, it’s all about his latest book “Wozu wir
da sind. Walter Wemut’s Handreichungen für ein gelungenes Leben” (What we’re here. for Walter Wemut’s Recommendations for a Successful Life), a monologue by a full-time obituary author on the major questions of existence.
