Dropping out and Dropouts: A Vision around 1900 and in the Works of Hermann Broch (1886-1951).
The workshop invites comparisons between Hermann Broch’s literary work and activities of artists and writers who came to Monte Verità in search of peace and harmony, in a world out of order. His novels mirror the experiences of exiles and provide a description of the risky life of dropouts: seekers, visionaries easily trapped by imposters, lost dreamers, and querulous troublemakers or doomsday prophets.
