The German Literature Archive is closed until further notice
Due to the corona virus the German Literature Archive including the museums will remain closed until further notice. All public events, workshops and guided tours are cancelled, probably until 15 June 2020.
Aesthetic processes of production and experience and their historical and linguistic conditions lie at the heart of the exhibitions of the German Literature Archive. Literature is not a phenomenon that is restricted to the book or to a single perspective. In fact, it is a living phenomenon precisely, because it allows many perspectives and can appear in all kinds of different media.
So visitors to the exhibitions will find themselves getting to grips with all kinds of things - texts, manuscripts, letters, photos, films, sound recordings, everyday objects and works of art from the archive, but also objects - created especially for the exhibitions - by reading and writing themselves. This individual creative approach not only enables a new view of literary texts and their traces, but also helps scholars to research aesthetic processes more closely and so to understand them better.
