About

WHAT IS BOX IN A SUITCASE ?

BOX IN A SUITCASE is a  blogazine for culture, travel and lifestyle in Europe. As its curator and author, I’m out and about in the continent’s most important cities, focusing on art, film and literature, interior design, fashion and food trends, interviewing creative minds and exceptional artists who live in or visit Europe. The blog’s underlying drive is an attempt to go beyond current political developments and debates. I want to take a look at our continent’s cultural diversity by directing our gaze to transregional and transnational projects and flaunting all the cultural treasures that can be discovered in Europe.

The title Box in a Suitcase is inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s famous artwork, created between 1935 and 41, of which he produced only a few copies, the first for Peggy Guggenheim. The small cardboard box, today of considerable value, includes miniature replicas, photographs and colour reproductions of Duchamp’s works and gives an overview of the versatile artist’s oeuvre. Duchamp’s Box in a Suitcase can be seen at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.

The name carries the same idea that Duchamp had: to use the box as a showcase for the results and variety of one’s work; in my case, I feature information about places of interest, inspiring encounters, good restaurants, great art and other cultural gems. The many posts in my box in a suitcase are culture and lifestyle en miniature, for everyone who loves being on the road as much as I do. All the topics I present on this blog are curated and all words and pictures, if not otherwise indicated, are created by me.

BOX IN A SUITCASE was founded in 2016. I still optimize the site regularly, but if technical difficulties should arise, I ask for your understanding. If you notice a persistent problem, please report it to Frauke.Schlieckau@boxinasuitcase.com

I want to thank Ingrid Lezar. She is responsible for the English proofreading. If you need English copy-editing, proofreading or translation or if you’re looking for training for writing or presenting in English, I can highly recommend her.
