The card catalogue in the library of the Literaturhaus Wien has lost its function due to digitisation. Evelyne Polt-Heinzl has transformed it into a quotation box and invited Margret Kreidl to redefine it.
Margret Kreidl has asked people who have accompanied and shaped her life as a writer to make a donation for one of the 60 drawers. The contributions come from Austria, Germany, Switzerland, France, Portugal, Bulgaria, Cuba, the USA and Israel, from the disciplines of literature, theatre, music, visual arts, architecture, media and photographic art.
Margret Kreidl leads us through her installation, which is a contemporary chamber of wonders and riddles, and a time machine showing a network of relationships spanning more than 30 years: Society in the most beautiful sense of the word.
