Z O O M is an exhibition and publication project of the Philara Collection, which positions literature as a basis for connection.

 

If you could only choose one book for an indefinite period of seclusion, what would it be and why?

 

»After reflecting for some time I decided to pick Thomas Mann's »Der Zauberberg« (»The Magic Mountain«) for this time of seclusion, of isolation.

This book, with all its reflections, introspections and other thoughts, some of which perhaps only arise out of isolation, seems to be of great interest, of great importance, and perhaps of great use, especially in these times of (self-)isolation and (self-)securities that are no longer available.« (Heribert C. Ottersbach, »Thomas Mann – Der Zauberberg«, in: ZOOM, Düsseldorf 2020)

 

This project and publication aim to create a quiet, introspective map of ideas of the period of isolation, one which sketches a mental exploration of the world and gives insights into artistic practice, humanistic principles, current social conflicts, as well as providing a view into the private lives of the interviewees.
