Heinrich Böll

Heinrich Böll is one of the most important and best-known writers of the Federal Republic of Germany. "Bound by the times and my contemporaries, to what my generation has lived through, experienced, seen, and heard," as he himself wrote, he was the critical chronicler of Germany’s history at mid-century.

The Heinrich Böll house at Langenbroich, a former residence of the Böll family, offers workspace for artists who are unable to work creativly - be it for reasons of censorship, civil unrest, or because of their economic situation.

This participation in turn includes the ability to take part in social deliberations about the direction and the limits of scientific and technological progress.
