“Beyond the Book”

“What is a book?” Helmut von Berg showing the literary magazine “Bella Triste 30″ at the Publishers’ Forum

“I wanted to explore the idea that the writer of a classic novel and winner of the Nobel Prize can transform the concept of his novel into something understandable and comprehensible without using words.”

In his article “Beyond the Book – How Containers Determine Perception“, Helmut von Berg compares two experiences: reading Orhan Pamuk’s novel and going to the museum of the same name in Istanbul created by the writer.
