With heart and soul: 45-minute tours for couples, families and friends
These tours are aimed particularly at smaller groups who would like to get to know the permanent exhibition The Soul 2 in a somewhat lighter, quicker and more intimate format. All three tours are also suitable for families with children. They offer the opportunity for all participants to enter into a dialogue about the exhibits - and about what fascinates us all about literature.
- From archive to museum:
The German Literature Archive in Marbach stores its many treasures in green archive boxes in underground stacks. In the museums, such treasures are brought to light, allowing visitors to take an exploratory look at them just as many scholars do. In this discovery tour through 20th century literature, participants will explore the secrets of manuscripts and other documents from writers' estates together and learn a lot about the German Literature Archive and its tasks.
- Through space and time:
In this conversation-oriented exploration of the Museum of Modern Literature and in particular the permanent exhibition The Soul 2, the focus is on an exchange about the museum and its exhibits. How do we perceive the museum spaces? Which exhibits appeal to us at first glance and what is the reason for this? Which objects are the other participants interested in and why? Talking about this opens up completely new ways of looking at the museum, which also creates unusual connections between the exhibits.
- »Der Brief hat Händ und Füß«. Interpersonal testimonies from the archive:
In addition to manuscripts, notes, research materials and books, the archive contains numerous letters, postcards, telegrams and other messages. They are testimonies of interpersonal relationships and also say a lot about the time in which they were written. The exhibits show the writers from a different, perhaps more accessible side. This guided tour not only makes the correspondence between the authors visible, it also encourages a (cross-generational) dialogue about the exhibits and one's own writing and reading experiences.
45-minute guided tour: € 55 plus € 5 museum admission p.p.
