This exhibition has its origins in the research done by Roswitha Quadflieg around the Hamburg chapter of Samuel Beckett's "German Diaries", which she printed in 2003 as the 28th and last print of her Raamin-Presse, under the title "Alles kommt auf so viel an", in a limited edition of 150 copies, illuminated with her
own illustrations.
(Transliteration and epilogue by Erika Tophoven).
The exhibition was first shown in the winter of 2003 at the Freie Akademie der Künste in Hamburg (in cooperation with Harald Butz), augmented in winter 2006/07 in the Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Hamburg as an homage on occasion of Samuel Beckett's 100th birthday, 2006, within the framework of the festival "Beckett in Town".
The online version was conceptually designed by Fritz-Renzo Heinze and Clemens-Tobias Lange, in which they took over as many photos as possible from the exhibition, and arranged the "textual level" so as to allow the viewer to promenade through Samuel Beckett's original citations – composed in English
and German - (written here in bold italics consistently)
