Poster Photo Exhibition.jpg

Photo Exhibition "Fourscapes and Chronotopes"

  • Photo exhibition by Christiane Maria Binder, Nataliya Gorbina, Kieran Harrington, and Sarah Neef
  • When: 8.10.2018, 17:00 – 7.11.2018, 16:00
  • Where: central library
  • Opening: Monday, 8.10.2018, 17:00 in the foyer of the central library
  • The exhibition takes a visual approach to temporal and spatial relationships in life and in photography as another mode of artistic representation. The contributors come from Ireland, Russia and Germany. They explore their own as well as foreign cultures through the lens of the camera, discovering surprising vistas of life abroad, but also unusual aspects of life at home. The extraordinary, the unorthodox, the exciting or the uncanny lurking beneath the surface of the ordinary can become the centre of attention at any moment.
    In taking these approaches the four contributors employ highly different perspectives, using very individual methods and styles. The photo exhibition presents a selection of chronotopic encounters with nature, landscape, cityscape, culture, and art. You are welcome to share these experiences, respond to the visual epiphanies and engage in discussions.
  • For more information, please see the poster.

30.10.2018: Bühnenstück "Mary Shelley" (2012)

“How mutable are our feelings, and how strange is that clinging love
we have of life even in the excess of misery!”

  • "Mary Shelley" (Helen Edmundson, UK 2012 [in parts & in English])
  • English Theater Group Studiobühne U215, TU Dortmund, Emil-Figge-Straße 50
  • 18:00, ca. 90 minutes
  • free admission
  • Im Rahmen unserer Frankenstein-Woche laden wir Sie ein zu einem Abend im Zeichen von Mary Shelleys Leben wie es die britische Bühnenautorin Helen Edmundson 2012 in ihrem gleichnamigen Stück interpretierte. In Auszügen zeigt uns die English Theater Group des Instituts für Anglistik und Amerikanistik der TU Dortmund ihren Blick auf die fesselnde Familiengeschichte hinter der Autorin Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin Shelley. Die Performance möchte ihr Publikum dazu einladen, die oftmals tragischen Hintergründe zu betrachten, die zur Entstehung eines der berühmtesten Schauerromane der Weltliteratur führen sollten.

31.10.2018: Reading & Discussion: Frankenstein, Or the Modern Prometheus (1818)

  • Reading & Discussion (in German and English)
  • Ev. Pauluskirche, Schützenstraße 35, 44147 Dortmund
  • 18:00 (doors open at 17:30)
  • free admission
  • On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s global bestseller Frankenstein, Or the Modern Prometheus (1818), the English Department of TU Dortmund University organises a special Halloween-Reading. Initiated by the Keats-Shelley Association of America, there will be so-called Frankenreads-Events on Halloween 2018 in more than 90 countries all over the world (frankenreads.org). In cooperation with Dortmund’s Paulus Church we dive into the uncanny atmosphere of this piece of world literature. Mary Shelley‘s Frankenstein has proven its incredible topicality – now and then – no matter if dealing with controversies concerning religion, politics, or the state of natural sciences.
    On Halloween 2018, the event church of the Protestant Lydia-parish will transform into a place where entertainment meets cultural knowledge. Scholars from different departments of TU Dortmund University will read parts of the original text (in English) and complement these passages with critical perspectives (in German), multimedia installations and musical interludes.
    We invite everybody to come and hear, discuss and celebrate with us one of the most famous works of Gothic fiction in this unique setting.
