An image of the Boekentoren ('Book Tower'), the main library of Ghent University designed by Henry van de Velde. It is painted in gouache over a page from an old novel. This sketch was part of the preparations for what became the film [meine heimat]. The text reads something like: "that last word / preserved / and classified / on one of the outstretched shelves / in late summer".
