Café Rosa logo facelift 2019
The café was originally set up by the student council and is self-managed by a group of students from the Ernst Bloch University.*
In November 1976, the Tübingen Institute for Educational Science was renamed the Rosa Luxemburg Institute during a strike by students from the department. Since then, students at the Institute have repeatedly reflected on the life and work of Rosa Luxemburg, a woman who had three major “faults”:
She was Jewish, she was a Marxist and she was a woman; three characteristics that have always been the reason for exclusion and discrimination in German society.
The café's namesake, Rosa Luxemburg, born in 1870, fought relentlessly for democracy. With her political commitment, she wanted to mobilize people to fight for their rights, which not only brought her friends, especially during her time.
I was asked to adjust the logo a bit to make it look more contemporary. The distinctive symbols such as the "Bloch fist" and the stars have been preserved.
*At the moment the university in Tübingen has a different name; Students are boycotting the old name due to the reprehensible pasts of the two namesakes and are calling for the name to be changed to "Ernst Bloch University".
