Lourdes Castro's Exhibition: "Todos os Livros"/"All the Books" - Part 2 ("Deutsch Hefte/German Notebooks/Cadernos de Alemão")




"Lourdes Castro was born on the island of Madeira and in the 30s went to the German School there. From 1958 onwards she studied and lived in Germany.
In Berlin, she devised a "German Correspondence Course" as an introduction to the language for Manuel Zimbro, who was in Paris.
It has been reproduced and published as an artist's book by Documenta Publishing House.
The original was exhibited at the Goethe-Institute in Lisbon, during its 50th anniversary celebrations."

The book I made a reference to in the first part of the post is called "Lourdes Castro para Manuel Zimbro: Deutsch Hefte"/"Lourdes Castro to Manuel Zimbro: German Notebooks", and it's something to behold in awe (This made me rethink what love truly means... Marvellous!)




(Cadernos de Alemão/German Notebooks, 1973.
Handwriting in German; collages; leaves packed in a blue dossier)
