The Karlgeorg and Maria Hoefer Archive
Content of a permanent exhibition: Scripts from Karlgeorg and Maria Hoefer, from lecturers and friends from the archive stock as well as artistic exhibition posters; other works from Karlgeorg and Maria Hoefer, generously made available by the three Hoefer siblings.

A small library, a wood cutting from the Strasbourg Cathedral according to a drawing by Rudolf Koch, a wall sculpture by Astrid Lincke, showcases with various exhibits of calligraphy supplement the permanent exhibition and give the archive the atmosphere of a museum.

In the image of a cross: The complete sermon on the mount from the gospel according to Saint Matthew was handwritten on paper by Rudolf Koch in a font which was typical of him.
Equipped in this way, the Schreibwerkstatt was able to celebrate a superb highlight with the ceremonial opening of the new Karlgeorg and Maria Hoefer Archive on 8th February 2009.
A new section included the 'Pictures of the Month' from 2012 / 2013 (calligraphy works - lecturers from the recent period).

It is also a "living archive" due to the use as a central meeting point for members and interested persons as well as a place for topical exhibitions.
