Words from the house Karlstein 15+

Puppet Theatre Maribor / Maribor Art Gallery and Theatre Konj

Words from the house Karlstein is the bridge between Berta Bojetu's early poetry and her later novels. This work also draws attention to the problem of the patriarchal order in society. Josephines in a ceremonial manner, almost through initiation, travel through the stations of their inner world. Through their own sacrifice they reveal that they invite in their house the killers, those who kill. Their ego travels through three stations - via gentlemen, innocence, to the awareness of their own body, and to the third station, which signifies stigmatization, as people come and go from Josephine's house. Josephine lives in a world in which she is completely alone and helpless over her destiny; this world does not offer and will never offer any kind of catharsis or purification: "I should walk across this earth to leave the earth the pain".

The entire poetics of Berta Bojetu always exists on several levels. This way of poetising seems to be the only possible because of the author’s ambivalence, which accompanies her her whole life. Jew after her father, who left her, marked by the departure of her mother to prison, a Christian after her mother ... all her life she fought and searched for her lost identity. Never a Jew, because religion beliefs are inherited from one’s mother, but in constant search of her Jewish roots. Boris A. Novak says that Berta "created her personal mythology based on a few sentences her mother uttered about her father".
