From shadow dance to science fiction, from batik to comic, from poetry to street food: The Frankfurt Book Fair's Guest of Honour 2015 is presenting its diverse cultural and literary landscape. “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", explains Goenawan Mohamad, Chairman of the Guest of Honour Committee. "We welcome you all – not just as tourists, but especially as discoverers.”
