Exhibition and Discussion on Picture Book Illustration

Via Goethe Institut

The exhibition Contemporary Picture Book Illustration in Germany offers an intriguing insight into the work of 13 well-known German illustrators viewed from their individual perspectives. Children's book illustration in Germany is known for its great diversity, one of the features that has contributed to its growing success and recognition on an international scale.

From water colour and collage to digital experiments, the selected artists cover a wide spectrum of contemporary illustrational art. Sometimes naive, sometimes sceptical, sometimes cheeky. Some artists play with imaginative words and images taken from dreams, others distort reality in a cheerful and comical way. Expressive images with strong colours stand opposite more muted and subtle illustrations.

There will be a Panel Discussion titled The Fine Art of Children's Book Illustration, in collaboration with the publishing house Tulika.
