This is how it all began! – Cataloguing correspondence from the estate of Barbara Heller and the estate of Elke Mascha Blankenburg
The Mariann Stegmann Foundation makes it possible for us to index, digitize, and transcribe unique correspondence from the estate of Barbara Heller (b. 1936) and the estate of Elke Mascha Blankenburg (1943–2013). They are thus available to scholars, and show us a part of the living history of women’s music. In this way, a documentation of the careers of women composers since the 1970s, their communication channels and networks across numerous countries of the world, and the first decades of the Working Group Women and Music e. V./Internationaler Arbeitskreis Frau und Musik e. V. is gradually being created.
