In September 2017 The LFTT Library was involved in an event at the Gerberei Museum in Enger, Germany. The event was the culmination of a year long collaboration with the Rumpelstilzchen-Literaturprojekt, an experimental poetry project led by artist Michael Hellwig at the Widukind Gymnasium in Enger. Poets Milena Evering, Anna Paszehr, Vanessa Schwarkow and Rabea Jasmin Usling composed poems using books from The LFTT Library. At the museum a number of sound and installation artists (Angelika Höger (DE), Aga Tamiola (PL) and Annemarie Deacy (IRL) and myself) were invited to respond to these works which were presented to the audience in collaboration with the poets in a live setting. This event was part of the literaturland westfalen ‘Hier!‘ festival in the context of the exhibition “Das Word wird Bild” (The Word becomes Image) by Ulrike Schönfelder-Hellwig, Siegfried Baron und Michael Hellwig.
