Kammer 1

DIDIER ERIBON UND ÉDOUARD LOUIS

Lecture

Just over a year ago, the translation of Didier Eribon’s autobiographical essay “Returning to Reims” sparked an ongoing debate in Germany about the crisis of the left in the face of the global rise of right-wing nationalist politics. A year earlier, the autobiographical novel “The End of Eddy” by Eribon’s student Édouard Louis was published in Germany, which portrays an amazingly similar childhood in the milieu of globalisation, 30 years after Eribon. Both authors will appear together at the Kammerspiele for a reading from their books, two days after the German general election, in an interview with Alex Rühle (SZ) to explain their views of Europe.
