05 Mar. → 13 Nov. '16NRW, Germany

Cultural programme in context of Frankfurter Buchmesse 2016

The Netherlands and Flanders are the joint Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2016.
They not only share a common language – Dutch – but can also look back on a common history in art, culture and literature. True to the motto Dit is wat we delen /This is what we share, there will naturally be novels, nonfiction and poetry, but also young writers, new genres and new formats from the bookmaking crafts, the creative industry and other currents of artistic expression. A lively programme of events kicks off across Germany in March, among which a lot of performing arts.
