The Museum of Literature is opened again!
The Museums Café and the Shop in the Schiller National Museum are also opened (entrance from the garden side). The exhibition area in the Schiller National Museum will remain closed until the opening of the exhibition ›Peter Rühmkorf - selbstredend und selbstreimend‹ on 25 October 2020 due to the exhibition reconstruction.
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.
