Kurze Lebensbeschreibung einer merkwürdigen und liebevollen Sau
We all know his drawings, but hardly anyone knows the painter: Ludwig Emil Grimm has always stood in the shadow of his famous brothers, for whose fairytales he provided many illustrations. It is only now that his genius is discovered: Grimm drew several comic stories on self-made paper scrolls, setting the stage for such famous classics as “Max und Moritz” by Wilhelm Busch.
In his wonderfully absurd comic story about the life of the especially peculiar and loving pig from Ihringhausen, Grimms draws a tongue-in-cheek portrait of his compatriots with a pointed pen and a lot of black humour.
Architecture in Iran is on the move. Surrounded by a strictly regulated public space, Iranians have a long tradition of keeping their private lives hidden.

In Russia, everywhere outside of Moskow or St. Petersburg is considered provincial. Just that the cities out there in the Russian hinterland easily reach several hundred thousand to over a million inhabitants. Poet Hendrik Jackson and photographer Heinrich Völkel have visited five of those provincial capitals: In Provintsiya they document their journey to Arkhangelsk, Astrakhan, Volgograd, Ulyanovsk and Kaliningrad. Their lyrical and photographic reflections take us to a Russia we don’t know, remote from the metropolises, and beyond the clichés.
Sjøland means sea-land. Herbert E. Wiegand and Heike Schmitz take us on a journey along the rugged Norwegian coast with its skerries and islands. The view of the horizon changes gradually, like when observed from a driving car, thanks to the continuity of the panoramic format.
At the same time a textual layer extends the reader’s perspective beyond the mere observation of a landscape. Together, text and images provide a many-faceted insight into the reality behind the rural idyll.
Sjøland has already been presented as an exposition in Norway. With the scroll, an adequate format has now been found for a print publication.
