Manchmal geschieht es, dass Künstler dank ihrer Intuition etwas finden, wofür man sonst in den Geisteswissenschaften Jahre des Studiums gebraucht hätte: Für BIRGITTA RENATE HEMMER ist es das hebräische Wort EDEN in seiner Bedeutung von "Wonne Vergnügen", das vielleicht einmal zum Schlüssel werden könnte im jüdisch-christlichen Dialog, um gegensätzliches Denken und Fühlen besser zu verstehen. Eine ganz entscheidende Entdeckung birgt die "Erschaffung der Erde" des Komponisten ALFRED CSAMMER: das Bild, das es in der Kunstgeschichte nicht geben durfte – das Bild der glücklichen Einheit von Adam und Eva. Stattdessen ist das Bild von Adam und Eva mit "Apfel" und Schlange für das Christentum buchstäblich zum "Sündenfall" geworden, der seine Auswirkungen bis heute hat. Auch wenn wir uns mehrheitlich längst von solchen Bildern verabschiedet haben, beherrschen sie uns noch immer: Sie wirken hinein bis in alle Winkel der Gesellschaft und bis an den Arbeitsplatz. Eine spannende Analyse des Bildes, das die systematische Benachteiligung der Frau einst theologisch begründete - und das von Birgitta Renate Hemmer ersetzt wird durch neue, heilsame Bilder...: 54 Abbildungen in Farbe.

After six days of absolute sleep deprivation, psychosis will set in. After four weeks, the body will die. In the interim, panic ensues and a bizarre new world arises.

If we are to give credence to legendary stories of our various cultures, then mankind is in a period of kimbo; the time between Paradise Lost and Paradise regained; between expulsion from Eden and attaining the blessed state of perfect happiness in Elysias. So mankind struggles through the vagaries of time and chance, weathering the buffetings of circumstance and fortune. Still, all it not lost or unfulfilled, for in our contending with time and chance, we become the recipients of countless experiences-pleasant and tragic-that inhabit our memories and weave the fabric of who we are; and we can record these memories of our experiences and encounters, thereby revealing ourselves, publishing our feelings to fellow sojourners.
