Beneath the camouflage of art, it is important to remember the famous meeting between the poet and the philosopher. Recall, the encounter took place at Martin Heidegger’s hut in the black forest, above the village of Todtnauberg, and there, after a lengthy walk among the flowers and the trees, the poet wrote one single line in the philosopher’s guest book: Ins Huttenbuch, mit dem Blick auf den Brunnenstern, mit einer Hoffnung auf ein kommendes Wort im Herzen. Am 25. Juli 1967/ Paul Celan Joseph Sassoon Semah Joseph Sassoon Semah was born 1948 in Baghdad. He is a widely exhibited artist who lives and works in Amsterdam.
