This Uncontainable Feeling of Freedom
Irène Schweizer - European Jazz and the Politics of Improvisation
Christian Broecking, Jeb Bishop (Übersetzer)
Swiss temples of high culture: the Lucerne Culture and Congress Centre and the Zurich Tonhalle. She fought constantly for artistic freedom and autonomy. Her committed action against apartheid and for women's rights resulted in her surveillance by Swiss intelligence agencies, revealed in the "secret files scan- dal" of 1989. Undaunted, Schweizer persisted in her activism for left politics in Switzerland.
Christian Broecking has researched and written the biography of one of the most exceptional musicians of the post-war period in Europe.
