Moritz Malsch…

… is publisher of Verlag Lettrétage

The publishing house doesn’t want to be avers to new ways of presenting literature, although it sees the “traditional” book as a priority  for now.

Soundout is also a current project of Moritz Malsch. It is the proof, that he is not avers to new ways!   🙂

What are your ideas and new ways of presenting literature?

A book is the ultimate mass-produced commodity. It is a rectangular object that stacks easily and can be made cheaply in great numbers…
What the icelandic artist group Meðgönguljóð propose for the SOUNDOUT! festival is to make the book itself an integral part of the reading process—to link readers to the books they consume on an emotional and physical level. They focus on the physical presentation of the book, on its creation, it‘s literal binding, its birth, as a literary happening.

How can we make the written word relevant in a fast-paced, visually-obsessed world?

„In 2013 he published his book Lettere alla Reinserzione Culturale del Disoccupato (“Letters to the Cultural Reinsertion of the Unemployed”) in Italy. The book consists of 17 letters. The writer of these letters, who is unemployed, directs his words to an indistinctly outlined entity called “Cultural Reinsertion”, whose dubious task is the integration of the unemployed into cultural life.“

Do we need more political themes in contemporary literature?
