Ein Zine für Werner
A Zine for Werner
“Exkursionsflora’s” sheer extensiveness allows a vague insight into the tremendous effort it took
to compose this piece of research. It sparks interest in its creator who, for the purpose of the highest possible level of objectivity, tried to obliterate himself in his work – only the name on the front cover and the marginal preface indicate the author Werner Rothmaler. But: Who was he?
The only exhaustive text on Rothmaler’s life is his funeral eulogy, perhaps ten pages long. In this
zine, it is being reprinted and interwoven with short notes on the development of “Exkursionsflora”.
