The Frankfurt Book Fair is the biggest book fair in the world. During this five day ‘Olympic Games of the book industry’, which is held in October each year, around 275,000 visitors descend upon Frankfurt. Because Flanders and the Netherlands are joining forces to host the 2016 edition, BOZAR is organising a spin-off of the Frankfurt Book Fair in the Centre for Fine Arts.

Alongside conversations and lectures, German writers will be speaking about their work and the rich tradition of German literature. Put on a pair of virtual reality glasses and experience three-dimensional poetry by the Dutch poet and writer Tonnus Oosterhoff during ‘C.a.p.e. Drop-Dog’ by the performance collective CREW. In the exhibition Facing the Future, a collaboration with the Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe (ZKM), German, Dutch and Flemish writers pair poetry from the literary visitor’s guide with their favourite painting. Scroll down for the full Frankfurt Book Fair @ BOZAR programme.
