In 2006 Orhan Pamuk received the Nobel Prize in Literature, and in 2007 he was awarded an honorary doctorate from the Department of Philosophy and Humanities of Freie Universität.
This fall he returned to Dahlem to give the Peter Szondi Lecture hosted by the Institute of Comparative Literature at Freie Universität in cooperation with the Centre Zentrum Marc Bloch.
During the lecture he reported on a project close to his heart, and he answered many questions from members of the audience. With the Museum of Innocence – the title of Pamuk's recent novel as well as a museum he curated in Istanbul – Pamuk transcends the boundaries between different art forms on the one hand and reality and fiction on the other.
