Herta Müller, Nobel Lecture, Stockholm, 2009.

Herta Müller told an autobiographical story. When she lost her job in Romania during Ceausescu Regime, she made her territory on the staircase by placing her handkerchief on the stairs and sitting on it.

I laid my pillow/cushion on the stairs of the medieval Poortersloge, Bruges, to make it my temporary resting place/territory. 2017

“She laid a cushion and found her cradle”

“Alles was ich habe, trage ich bei mir” “All that I have I carry with me” Herta Müller Breath-Swing, Atemschaukel, Ademschommel.
