Boekpresentatie Jan Brokken

31 januari 2020

‘Stedevaart’, the latest book by Brokken, was presented on January 31 at the OBA Oosterdok Theater with a rendition of the program ‘Parade, the Paris by Erik Satie’ with which Jan Brokken with Tobias Borsboom (piano) and Peter Vigh (alto saxophone) will cross the country. This is one of the 22 stories from the book about 22 cities by 22 striking personalities – visual artists, writers, composers, architects, politicians, scholars or a bookbinder – who embody the spirit of the city. In ‘Stedevaart’ is the story Honderden, duizenden kilometers geschiedenis which Jan Brokken wrote (and now rewrote) in 2009 for my book ‘Berlin’s Covered History’ under the title A little less history, please?
