New in our Moloko Print catalogue:
Bert Papenfuß (1956) grew up in the German Democratic Republic where he was trained as a sound and lighting technician. After military service he moved to Berlin in 1976, where he made a living at a theatre and developed into an active member of the Prenzlauer Berg literary scene. Papenfuß co-owned the Kaffee Burger club for 10 years and ran his Rumbalotte Continua cultural café until 2015, when he decided to close the premises as a result of the intensifying gentrification of Prenzlauer Berg. The irrepressible Bert Papenfuß was awarded several literary prizes, has been published widely in Germany and has been on the editorial board of a number of cultural magazines, among others Sklaven, Gegner and Abwärts!. Last year Moloko Plus from Schönebeck published Papenfuß’s Abriß!, no doubt one of the author’s most comprehensive works so far.
