The Solitude Atlas is published in time for the 25 year anniversary of Akademie Schloss Solitude, which celebrates its jubilee with this special publication. Former and current fellows describe in 145 contributions the city they are currently living. By this a very special atlas was created, which confesses to a subjective view of the world. With this publication, the Akademie hopes to convey something of the knowledge and experience it has been able to glean by virtue of its many guests and fellows. The Solitude Atlas, then, reflects the Akademie’s panoramic view of what is happening in the world and expresses its personal relationship with the authors.
