Meet a world between myths, mysticism and modernity:
At a press conference at the Haus des Buches (Frankfurt), this year’s Guest of Honour gave a detailed preview of its literary and cultural programme.
“With its role as Guest of Honour at the 2015 Frankfurt Book Fair, Indonesia has the opportunity to take a first tentative step on the international literary stage”, explains Goenawan Mohamad, Chairman of the Guest of Honour Committee.
“Our country is not very well known in Europe, and we’d like open the door now to give people here a glimpse of our multifaceted archipelago. We welcome you all – not just as tourists, but especially as discoverers.”
