Kammer 1



Continuing correspondence by letter has long ago been replaced by other media for exchange and faster modes of communication. But nevertheless: Even today letters are still written. In what situations, under which political circumstances are paper and pen consciously chosen? Who still now or once again writes letters? What correspondence is so important, so unique that it must be re-published, preserved? In the next season the Letters of the Century will again invite the audience to dedicate their attention to a select variety of such letters and to listen to the voices they emit.
