"Ich finde, dass die Welt als Ganzes absurd ist, oder doch nicht absurd ist. Es ist schwer zu sagen, was absurd ist, da wir kein Vorbild dessen haben, was nicht absurd ist."

Liability for content

As a service provider, the operator of the website is responsible according to § 7 para.1 TMG for own content on these pages according to the general laws. According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, however, the operator as a service provider is not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances that indicate an illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information under general law remain unaffected. A liability in this regard, however, is only possible from the date of knowledge of a specific infringement. Upon notification of such violations, this content will be removed immediately.

The contents of the website have been carefully researched and compiled. Errors or incompleteness cannot be excluded. The author does not guarantee the actuallity, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author, which refer to material or immaterial nature, which were caused by the use or disuse of the information provided or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information, are excluded, unless the author proves intentional or a grossly negligent fault is present. All offers are non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change parts of the pages or the entire offer without prior notice, delete or cease publication temporarily or permanently.

Liability for links

The offer contains links to external websites of third parties on whose contents the operator of this website has no influence. Therefore, no guarantee can be given for these external contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the contents of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal content was not recognizable at the time of linking. However, a permanent content control of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of an
infringement. Upon notification of rights violations, such links will be removed promptly.

The reproduction, processing, distribution and any kind of exploitation outside the limits of copyright require the written consent of the respective author or creator.

Upon notification of violations, such content will be removed immediately.

The origin of this website goes back to 1999. Eugène Ionesco had died five years earlier and was not very present in the media anymore. The internet was still in its infancy - compared to its significance today. The website ionesco.de back then and also today was intended to keep up the memory of the playwright and individual Eugène Ionesco, of his thoughts and words.

In 2018 the website ionesco.de has been changed entirely concerning layout.
