To mark the Bauhaus centenary, Haus der Seidenkultur (HdS) was able to invite the author Tom Saller to give a reading on Sunday June 7th from 11.00 to 13.00 hours in the museum in Luisenstraße 15. “Martha tanzt” is the title of the debut novel by the psychotherapist Tom Saller from the year 2018. In this novel he relates the life of the fictitious Martha Wetzlaff from Pomerania on two different time levels. She was born in Berlin in 1900, studied for a few years at the Weimar Bauhaus and after 1945 made a career as a dancer in New York
The story is linked to actual events and persons. Saller was inspired by the lifestory of his own grandmother who like the protagonist in the novel was called Martha and originated from Pomerania.
