Germany - Guest of Honor, 2017
Germany was represented at the Warsaw National Stadium by more than 60 publishing houses and institutions, as well as by 15 German speaking authors, including Nobel Prize in Literature winner, Herta Müller.
The Federal President of Germany, Frank-Walter Steinmeier chaired the opening of the stand. The Scheßl/Weismüller design concept involved a variety of urban elements to create an experimental space with different functional and participatory areas that was very well received by the audience.
„Literatürme“ – Literature Towers
The visitors were invited to complete quotes of contemporary writers on postcards and stick them to the „Literatürme“ (literature towers). That way, the booth kept evolving and transforming from day to day through this interactive concept and portrayed a personalized peek into the exhibited literature.
