Sterben Uben (Learning To Die)
|Author||A. Gohmert Ed.|
‘Learning to Die’ is a polyphonic canon dedicated to an inescapable topic for us as humans: mortality. The invited authors take up Anna Gohmert’s initial prompt to engage with the range of topics around dying, each expanding on it in their own way. With texts both academic and poetic, written by authors from various disciplines (art history, philosophy, fine art, performing arts), the contents oscillate between an acceptance and rejection of impending death. The perspective varies depending on whether the subject is one’s own mortality or that of another person. Among the book’s ten contributors are Charlotte Klink, Serena Ferrario, Valentin Leuschel, and Anna-Kirstine Linke.
