Public Program | Book Presentation: Peter Schneider "An der Schönheit kann's nicht liegen..."
On February 24, 2016 The Aspen Institute Germany and Dussmann das KulturKaufhaus invited to a reading with the author and essayist Peter Schneider. The occasion was Schneider’s newest book, in which he depicts his adopted hometown:
An der Schönheit kann’s nicht liegen... Berlin – Portrait einer ewig unfertigen Stadt.
The event started with welcoming words by Catherine von Fürstenberg-Dussmann, Chairperson of the Board of Trustees of the Peter Dussmann-Foundation and Member of the Board of Trustees of the Aspen Institute Germany. Then, after a short introduction by Rüdiger Lentz, Executive Director of the Aspen Institute Germany, Peter Schneider took the audience on an authentic journey through Berlin.
The reading was followed by an Interview with Rüdiger Lentz, in which Schneider discussed on current cultural and political topics concerning Berlin and answered questions from the audience. At the subsequent reception, the guests had the opportunity to purchase a personally autographed copy of Schneider’s book.
