A World on Edge reveals Europe in 1918, left in ruins by World War I. With the end of hostilities, a radical new start seems not only possible, but essential, even unavoidable. Unorthodox ideas light up the age like the comets that have recently passed overhead: new politics, new societies, new art and culture, new thinking. The struggle to determine the future has begun.

Daniel Schönpflug, professor at the Friedrich-Meinecke-Institut (FMI) of the Freie Universität Berlin, will read out extracts of his book and afterwards discuss with Tercio Redondo, professor for German literature at the Universidade de São Paulo (USP), and the public. More information about the Portuguese edition of his book is available on the publisher´s website:


The event will be held in German and translated simultaneously into Portuguese.
