Desert winds blow through the stacks: nestling between the shelves of literature at the BSEL library are atmospheric photographs of the Namib desert and its inhabitants and a range of linocuts tracing the difficult history of the region and its hopes for the future. The exhibition “Spirit of Namibia” is on at the BSEL Library on the Schöneberg Campus.

Elena Parangoni was named as this year’s winner of the DAAD prize for excellent achievement by an international student. In addition to studying for a Master’s degree in “International Marketing Management”, the 24-year old Albanian also works with orphans in Tirana.
