Curiosity, ideas and the common interest in stories and history as well as the desire to present our findings to an interested audience led to the formation of our project team.

With “Enter History!” we are asking the question on how to approach history while negating it at the same time. Engaging with history and telling stories are processes that cannot be codified as they are only snapshots within a limited frame. If “history is made” as we heard in a song of the band Fehlfarben in the early 1980s, we would like to participate in it. With our work and our interpretations – outside of university structures and in the midst of daily life – we comprehend and commit to the responsibility that arises from this wish.
