"You don't sip Alpine oysters – a journey of discovery through Graubünden"
Reading and discussion
Culture on Monday
In May 2022, journalist and artist Samuel Herzog finds 16 postcards from 1966 in Paris. They all come from Graubünden, written by an enigmatic Osamine. Herzog makes his way to the areas depicted on the postcards. He photographs and writes a text about what he experiences on site. The result of this unique project is a richly illustrated travel book. A literary homage to the landscapes and people of Graubünden, where fiction and reality meet in a surprising, very entertaining and often humorous way. This somewhat different travel guide breaks new ground through the agriculture, flora and cuisine of the mountain canton.
Afterwards, guests can enjoy a table picture by Samuel Herzog in both senses of the word.
The author's reading presents Herzog's witty and clever texts about Graubünden and will be moderated by Mathias Balzer, editorial director of FRIDA, who edited this book. In addition, the conversation sheds light on the rich and imaginative artistic universe of the author.
The author, artist and journalist Samuel Herzog, born in 1966, is one of Switzerland's most renowned cultural journalists. For more than twenty years, he reported on the art world for the NZZ worldwide. Today, he writes his weekly culinary column "Mouthpiece" for the same newspaper. In addition to his journalistic work, Herzog has been active as an artist for 25 years and has exhibited in various museums. Among other things, he hosted the Kunsthausfest 2022 at the Graubünden Art Museum with his edible table paintings.
