Location: 113 Folwell Hall

In addition to reading from new and old texts, Thomas Meinecke and Rembert Hueser (GSD) will discuss his writings, films, music, and various transatlantic imports and reimports.

Thomas Meinecke was born in Hamburg, Germany. He studied theater, German literature, and communication at Munich’s LMU, earning his master’s degree and writing for the underground magazine Mode & Verzweiflung. In 1980, he cofounded the band Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle (F.S.K.), which continues to record today, and since 1985 has worked as a club and radio DJ. He is the author of six novels, all of which use an innovative writing technique similar to music sampling. This approach allows him to deal with a variety of topics, from popular culture, music, and gender roles, to the Jewish and African Diasporas in the United States.
