"He was not a brother of the masses "* An exhibition on the 90th birthday of Uwe Johnson

An artistic examination of Uwe Johnson and Wolfgang Koeppen by Matthias Dettmann (Rostock)

What role does rural space play in Uwe Johnson's work? How is the Mecklenburg homeland reflected in foreign lands? What do people remember? Where do we draw parallels? Matthias Dettmann examined not only literary aspects, but also Johnson's personal relationships with the state of Mecklenburg, e.g. how Johnson took Mecklenburg places and people with him on his travels and processed them in his literature. In the course of Dettmann's engagement with Uwe Johnson, more and more byways emerged and continue to emerge, as this exhibition in the Koeppenhaus now shows, which also illuminates Wolfgang Koeppen's relationship to Uwe Johnson in an exemplary way.
We are opening this exhibition as part of the Festival up Platt, which St. Spiritus is now organizing for the 4th year with other partners. You can find the program at
