The Frankfurt Book Fair opened last night, and New Zealand stole the show. Have a look at images from the evening.
Big day yesterday as we opened the New Zealand pavilion to the media and had the official opening of the Frankfurt Book Fair. The response has been overwhelmingly positive and everywhere you turn, even in this giant machine, New Zealand is in the spotlight.
On the eve of the Frankfurt Book Fair opening, New Zealand is preparing to shine the light on New Zealand in Frankfurt, and perhaps break a few hearts along the way.
Last year architect Andrew Patterson’s firm, Patterson Associates Ltd, was named by World Architecture News as one of five worldwide “set to influence global architecture.” I recently caught up with Andrew to see what is buzzing on his radar right now, and to get a better understanding of the genesis of his unique approach to design.
“Well Frankfurt Book Fair really excites me,” says Andrew.
Eight New Zealand writers told eight New Zealand stories and wove together a single narrative of the Māori/Pakeha relationship in New Zealand at the Long Night of Māori Stories.
New Zealand writers gathered together in Berlin ahead of The Long Night of Māori Stories which took place as part of the Berlin International Writers Festival.
Award-winning author Hamish Clayton is about to hop on a plane to Frankfurt to take up a month-long residency at the Weltkulturen Museum – one of the city’s cultural highlights.
During his stay Clayton will be given access to the entire collection which spans centuries of world history and documents the cultures of Oceania, Africa, South East Asia as well as from North, South and Central America. Clayton’s residency means he’ll be staying on the museum grounds and will have 24 hour access to its treasures.
