Christa Butterhof-Lorenz, chimney sweep
While German folk wisdom already claims that chimney sweeps bring you good luck, this master of her trade jokes that "a female chimney sweep brings double the good luck."
She - like all of the craftswomen, technicians, engineers and scientists portrayed in our exhibition - goes her own way, no matter what people say. What inspires her about her job?
"The nice thing about my job is that I never get bored, I've been in my job for thirty years and I've never had a boring day. Pure adventure every day."
