The exhibitions show material things – manuscripts, letters, photos, works of art and everyday objects – from the holdings of the German Literature Archive. These things make the history and theory of literature visible in material forms.
Our exhibitions cover historical ground from 1750 into the present, with varying authors and emphases. We prefer to choose themes where ideas that inspire reading and writing arise naturally out of the visual world.
Our focus lends itself to methods of exhibition that combine scholarship and art – self-reflective, not illustrative, creative, not didactic. Our program links research and education and understands both as an open process in which thinking is at the center.
