"Die Notizbücher der Mademoiselle Heidi Schreber"is a drawing series by artist Miguel Ventura in which he imagines the notebooks of a young woman, based on the paranoiac hallucinations of Daniel Paul Schreber. The work is also a multilingual handbook of texts and drawings that illustrate Ventura's ideas about the physical and psychological transformations required to build an ideal society, which include a reengineered language and an Orwellian future of genetically manipulated white, blond people. Includes texts in Spanish, English, German, Chinese, Arabic, and Swahili.
