Book Launch & Reading 
Matti Braun
Saturday February 22, 2020, 4 pm

 

On occasion of the publication edited by Bodhisattva Chattopadhyay, Beth Citron, and Matti Braun, the artist will read from the Bengali science fiction story “Mangalik” by Parashuram, translated by co-editor Bodhisattva Chattopadhyay. This pioneering 1955 text is published for the first time in English. 

The book brings together texts by Parashuram, Beth Citron, Bodhisattva Chattopadhyay, Dip Ghosh, Ranen Ghosh, Soham Guha, Sudhir Kakar, Sami Ahmad Khan, Matthia Löbke, and Amrita Shah, highlighting the myriad interconnections of the work of Rabndranath Tagore, Vikram Sarabhai, Satyajit Ray, and Indian and Bengali science fiction. Richly illustrated, the publication presents Matti Braun’s artistic production of the last ten years. 

Following the reading, Matti Braun and Isabelle Moffat will discuss related topics. The reading will be in English, the discussion in German and English. 

The event is free and open to the public. As seating is limited, please register HERE
