    “Die Vegetarierin” by Han Kang
    Wednesday, May 27, 7 pm

    Literary conversation with the literary expert Sylvia Schwab (in German)

    “Die Vegetarierin is a masterwork“ - Julia Encke, Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung

    The novel The Vegetarian (thus the title of the English translation) by the South Korean Han Kang tells the strangely disturbing tale of a woman who – in the opinion of her husband – could hardly be more average. Until she decides to become a vegetarian, which, in South Korea, a country of strict social norms, amounts to a small revolution. “I had a dream” – is the protagonist’s vague reason for her behaviour, which becomes increasingly strange as she bids the world farewell, retreating into her own world. A bestseller about a highly sensitive person who loses the ability to be human.
    Read the novel in parallel with the exhibition and reflect your impressions with others over a glass of wine during our BuchBar event.

    Han Kang; Die Vegetarierin, published by Aufbau Verlag
