This book is not yet published, but will be available from March 2022.

ISBN: 9783775752053 Category:


It’s All About Freedom presents a comprehensive cross-section through nine decades of Tomi Ungerer’s artistic work for the first time-from drawings from the nineteen-thirties to objects from the two thousand-tens. The exhibits selected shed new light on Ungerer’s oeuvre by making it possible to comprehend the artistic dimension of the political and stylistic lines and breaks in his oeuvre as a ‘freewheeling artist’. His passion for experimenting across genres and the interplay between drawing, collage, and assemblage through which he searched for identity and humanity is thus shown in his work again and again. Developed by the Deichtorhallen Hamburg / Sammlung Falckenberg in cooperation with the Tomi Ungerer Estate and the Musée Tomi Ungerer in Strasbourg, the volume brings together contributions on Tomi Ungerer’s life’s work by Thomas David, Belinda Grace Gardner, Aria Ungerer, and Thérèse Willer, with a foreword by Dirk Luckow and Harald Falckenberg.
