literaturhaus handcrafts homespun art objects that play with and challenge structures & forms—words juxtaposed to find the cracks.
⁘ We investigate the possibilities and utilize them to realize the potential of our words.
⁘ The book is a crafted object and not a foregone conclusion.
⁘ History does not reflect the multitudes of its stories.
⁘ In the moment, the result of any conflict does not feel as inevitable as it appears in hindsight.
⁘ Yesterday’s conflicts still send ripples through our days.
⁘ Big data surrounds us and threatens to sweep us away into passivity without form, without ways to explore, to understand the ripples of the day, to pursue one another amidst the deluge.
⁘ The knowledge gained by a generation is not automatically passed on, not by blood, not by destiny, and not through mere survival.
⁘ Stockpiling resources (whether stories, gold, uranium, or any other damn thing) is not a reflection of gained wisdom, character, goodwill, humanity, or worth.
⁘ What remains essential is the ability to read, to recognize, and to cultivate.
