认识 狄伦马特纳沙泰尔中心The Centre Dürrenmatt Neuchâtel (CDN)
It was on the 14th of December 1990, three weeks short of his seventieth birthday that Friedrich Dürrenmatt passed away in Neuchâtel. He had lived and worked in that city for almost 40 years.
Dürrenmatt's bequest of his literary holdings to the Swiss Confederation in 1989 gave rise to the Swiss Literary Archives in Bern in 1991. Thereupon Ms. Charlotte Kerr Dürrenmatt, his second wife, donated Dürrenmatt's former house and garden to the Confederation, under the proviso that these be integrated, based on plans drawn up by Mario Botta, into a future Centre bearing the writer's name. Her initiative thus ensured that her husband's artistic oeuvre would be assembled and presented in a suitable location. Botta came up with certain initial ideas already in 1992; construction got underway in May 1998 and was terminated in September 2000.
The Centre Dürrenmatt Neuchâtel (CDN) is a unit of the Swiss National Library. Taking its cue from Dürrenmatt's achievements, the CDN promotes an interdisciplinary approach to the relations between literature and the visual arts. The diversity of its agenda and the scientific support it lends to the Swiss Literary Archives makes the Centre an important bridge between Switzerland's French- and German-speaking regions.
狄伦马特在1989年将其文学遗产餽赠给瑞士联邦，进而导致瑞士国家文学档案馆于1991年在伯恩成立。随后他的第二任妻子，夏洛特·狄伦马特 - 克尔，将狄伦马特故居的房子和花园捐赠给瑞士联邦，但前提是未来中心的命名须含作者的名字，并且依照知名建筑师马里奥·博塔(Mario Botta)的设计去规划。因此，她确保了丈夫作品的统一收藏与展示。其实博塔原先在1992年就有初步的建筑设计想法，但直到1998年5月才开始施工，并在2000年9月完工。
狄伦马特纳沙泰尔中心 (CDN) 附属于瑞士国家图书馆。从狄伦马特的成就中得到启发，CDN提倡跨领域的交流，并推广文学与视觉艺术。中心的活动多样化并对瑞士国家文学档案馆的贡献繁多，并成为瑞士法语区和德语区的重要桥梁。
