On 18th March 2019 German author Christa Wolf would have turned 90.

Lead by Birgit Dahlke (professor of Literary Studies at Humboldt University and head of the Christa and Gerhard Wolf Private Library Research Center), students of the Humboldt University discovered exciting motives in Christa Wolf’s oeuvre that transcend time and space. Based on this work and together with graphic designer Martin Hoffmann they put up a surprising exhibition: Texts meet graphics, and Christa Wolf’s poetic language takes on new forms.

On 14 panels the students present and reflect a wide range of perspectives on Wolf’s works. Her famous novels Cassandra and Medea as well as Wolf’s relation to the Soviet East, her letters and herself being a reader and feminist are points of reference that visitors can start off from.

The exhibition will open with a vernissage and a staged reading on 13th May 2019.

The staged reading based on texts by Christa Wolf is conceived by Marina Brafa, Katharina Hackl, Daria Kolesova and Emma Charlott Ulrich. Texts will be read by Daria Kolesova and Emma Charlott Ulrich as well as Celine Meral and Nils Mojem. This evening will be hosted by Birgit Dahlke (professor of Literary Studies and member of the board of the Christa Wolf Society).

The exhibition can be visited during business hours until 26th May 2019. The finissage takes place on 26th May 2019, 16 o’clock.
