Adrienne Rich

Adrienne Cecile Rich was an American poet and feminist. She was called "one of the most read and influential poets of the second half of the 20th century", was credited with bringing "the oppression of women and lesbians to the forefront of poetic discourse." Rich criticized rigid forms of feminist identities, valorized what she coined the "lesbian continuum". Her first collection of poetry, A Change of World, was selected by renowned poet W. H. Auden for the Yale Series of Younger Poets Award. Auden went on to write the introduction to the published volume, she famously declined the National Medal of Arts, protesting the vote by House Speaker Newt Gingrich to end funding for the National Endowment for the Arts. Adrienne Rich was born in Baltimore, the elder of two sisters, her father, renowned pathologist Arnold Rice Rich, was the chairman of pathology at The Johns Hopkins Medical School. Her mother, Helen Elizabeth Rich, was a composer, her father was from a Jewish family, her mother was a Southern Protestant.

Adrienne Rich's early poetic influence stemmed from her father, who encouraged her to read but to write her own poetry. Her interest in literature was sparked within her father's library, where she read the work of writers such as Ibsen, Blake, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Tennyson, her father was ambitious for Adrienne and "planned to create a prodigy." Adrienne Rich and her younger sister were home schooled by their mother until Adrienne began public education in the fourth grade. The poems Sources and After Dark document her relationship with her father, describing how she worked hard to fulfill her parents' ambitions for her—moving into a world in which she was expected to excel. In years, Rich went to Roland Park Country School, which she described as a "good old fashioned girls' school gave us fine role models of single women who were intellectually impassioned." After graduating from high school, Rich earned her college diploma at Radcliffe College, where she focused on poetry and learning writing craft, encountering no women teachers at all.

In 1951, her last year at college, Rich's first collection of poetry, A Change of World, was selected by the senior poet W. H. Auden for the Yale Series of Younger Poets Award. Following her graduation, Rich received a Guggenheim Fellowship to study at Oxford for a year. Following a visit to Florence, she chose not to return to Oxford, spent her remaining time in Europe writing and exploring Italy. In 1953, Rich married Alfred Haskell Conrad, an economics professor at Harvard University she met as an undergraduate, she said of the match: "I married in part because I knew no better way to disconnect from my first family. I wanted what I saw as a full woman's life, whatever was possible." They settled in Cambridge and had three sons. In 1955, she published her second volume, The Diamond Cutters, a collection she said she wished had not been published; that year she received the Ridgely Torrence Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America. Her three children were born in 1955, 1957 and 1959.

The 1960s began a period of change in Rich's life: she received the National Institute of Arts and Letters award, her second Guggenheim Fellowship to work at the Netherlands Economic Institute, the Bollingen Foundation grant for the translation of Dutch poetry. In 1963, Rich published her third collection, Snapshots of a Daughter-in-Law, a much more personal work examining her female identity, reflecting the increasing tensions she experienced as a wife and mother in the 1950s, marking a substantial change in Rich's style and subject matter. In her 1982 essay "Split at the Root: An Essay on Jewish Identity", Rich states: "The experience of motherhood was to radicalize me." The book met with harsh reviews. She comments, "I was seen as'bitter' and'personal'. I realised I'd gotten slapped over the wrist, I didn't attempt that kind of thing again for a long time."Moving her family to New York in 1966, Rich became involved with the New Left and became involved in anti-war, civil rights, feminist activism.

Her husband took a teaching position at City College of New York. In 1968, she signed the "Writers and Editors War Tax Protest" pledge, vowing to refuse tax payments in protest against the Vietnam War, her collections from this period include Necessities of Life and The Will to Change, which reflect radical political content and interest in poetic form. From 1967 to 1969, Rich lectured at Swarthmore College and taught at Columbia University School of the Arts as an adjunct professor in the Writing Division. Additionally, in 1968, she began teaching in the SEEK program in City College of New York, a position she continued until 1975. During this time, Rich received the Eunice Tietjens Memorial Prize from Poetry Magazine. Rich and Conrad hosted Black Panther fundraising parties at their apartment. Rising tensions began to split the marriage, Rich moved out in mid-1970, getting herself a small studio apartment nearby. Shortly afterward, in October, Conrad shot himself, widowing Rich. In 1971, she was the recipient of the Shelley Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America and spent the next year and a half teaching at Brandeis University as the Hurst Visiting Professor of Creative Writing.

Fritz Bornemann

Fritz Bornemann was a German architect. Bornemann studied architecture at the Technical University of Berlin. After graduating in 1936, he was Assistant Scenic Designer at the Berlin Municipal Opera and, starting in 1945, Construction Supervisor with the city of Berlin. Since 1950 he became an independent architect active in Berlin; the designs for the Amerika-Gedenkbibliothek, the Deutsche Oper Berlin, the Freie Volksbühne and the Museumszentrum Berlin-Dahlem were drawn up by him. He designed the headquarters of the Commerzbank Berlin, he designed the German Pavilion for the 1970 World's Fair in Osaka. With this building Bornemann decisively renounced the large architectonic gesture by burying the exhibition area below ground. There appeared, amongst others, the extension of the Rathaus of Berlin-Wedding and the University Library in Bonn, he never built residential houses. Less well known is his work in multimedia, he designed some exhibitions, amongst them Farmer Smith. The Osaka Pavilion was his crowning achievement in this field.

Bornemann's architecture was and is a subject of violent controversial opinions over the modern trends of the 1950s and 1960s. The critics speak of "cold" or "austere" architecture and belittle his buildings with expressions like "elegance in exposed-aggregate concrete." His adherents see in his work a model for modern architecture, for modern theatre architecture. For more than 16 years Fritz Bornemann was chairman of the Bund Deutscher Architekten.
