    University Library

    Two portrait collage works in mixed media with colorful abstract acrylic painting. Left: "Homage to Simone de Beauvoir" with this text: "The entire history of women: Made by men? Primarily, mostly, but not only. Ever since time immemorial there have been matriarchies, where all power is organized through the descent of the maternal line, and religious beliefs are traced back to a beldam or great goddess. But these were archaeological cultures. Thus, women must continue to work intensely for their liberation ..." On the right, the "Homage to Hugo von Hoffmannsthal" with the following text: "When the development of imagination turns against fate, does that break what we plan - or do new possibilities not also arise? And is not also the value of rational thinking for visions to be questioned?"

    Guided tour in German

    Schillerplatz/ University Library (Reading room, M7)

    University Library

    The color photograph shows what may be a typical desk or work table of a senior official in the library service. A scriptor or an amanuensis (assistant scribe) possibly, since these two people with this job title have to do the work of the classic "librarian" behind the scenes. In addition to the necessary work utensils – such as nib pens, inkwell, blotting cradle, index cards, and various inventory books and lists – the everyday work is completed by many other period-typical accessories, which allows you to put yourself in the necessary work steps and to revel and live a little in the flair of the 19th century.
