On Thursday, December 14th we had the last HAFENLESUNG of 2017, which was also the last one in our beloved home-venue, the now closed Golem. Hafenlesung Nr.13 was the very last cultural event to take place in this legendary club & centre for alternative culture. Already an off-location, thanks to our brother in arms Martin Siegmann, EX-GOLEM opened its doors for a last time to partner with us for a grand finale. We celebrated in English, French, German, Polish, Spanish and Swedish. with an all-star line-up: –Nora-Eugenie Gomringer –Dagmara Kraus –Björn Kuhligk –Aurélie Maurin –Magnus William-Olsson –Christian Bernhardt –Tabea Venrath. We heartily thank our guest authors, Nils Poppe and Barbara Lüdde for having supported us in the bar, and specially our attentive audience: because of your support we have been able to maintain our platform for new international literature in Hamburg for three years already, and we hope to keep doing so in another venue next year.
