POP. Ein Panorama der Gegewart

A reading by and with Jens Balzer, discussion with Annette Walter and Christoph Gurk

Is pop music the most important art form of our present time? At least no other genre responds as directly and quickly to the state of our time. In the German-language area there is no other journalist who tracks the current phenomena of this mass culture with as much passion and close-up involvement, with as much acumen and linguistic brilliance as Jens Balzer. Within the framework of a reading and in discussion with Annette Walter and Christoph Gurk the deputy head of the features section of the Berliner Zeitung presents a volume with the programmatic title “Pop”. It is the first time that he summarizes his thoughts and observations that have been spread out over innumerable newspaper articles between the covers of a single book.
