The Monacensia in Munich invited Bloggers to experience their Erika Mann exhibition. They are part of the pubic library in Munich and host the literary estate of the whole Mann familiy. We were introduced to the house, their archival work, the Erika Mann exhibition and a lyrically live performance. I was watch and listened and kept sketching away.
Introduction of the library: “Monacensia operates as literary memory for Munich”.
My ink sketches and a view of the Erika Mann Exhibition.
Sylvia Schütz shows us around the exhibition: “Erika and Klaus pretended to be twins while on their trip around the world”.
