TITLE
Wolfgang Bergmann
Sterben lernen
– Notierungen zu Krebs
und Not und Tod

(Coping with Death)

SUMMARY
Book on the Experience of Dying:
This a book out of the ordinary. On 80 pages, the author gives an unsparing and heartbreaking account of his illness of terminal cancer, his fading strength over time, and, eventually, his willingness to accept the fact that he will soon die.

Wolfgang Bergmann was a psychologist and family scientist who died in May of 2011 at the age of 67 after a year-long battle with bone cancer. In his lifetime, he headed the Institute for Child Psychology and Learning Therapy in Hanover, and he also authored nonfiction books with much success.

Shortly before his death, the author asked the publisher to find an artist who could come up with Japanese-style images to be used inside the book, or log rather.

This called for non-figurative drawings, brushed with Indian ink. This was the first time that I created abstract illustrations for a book, and also one of the rare occasions where I would actually work with real ink and paper, as opposed to the digital world that I usually work in these days.

Needless to say, I was a little reluctant, and also intimidated by the emotional topic that was offered to my by the publisher shortly after Wolfgang Bergmann passed away. I ended up creating a variety of thick brush stroke images that were scattered in the book where deemed suitable.

For the jacket cover of the small book, I chose a dark linen coating, and a small sheet of paper attached to the linen that contained the title.

DETAILS

   

   
Die Kunst des Sterbens

Unheilbarer Knochenkrebs – diese Diagnose erhielt der große Pädagoge und Bestsellerautor Wolfgang Bergmann mit 61 Jahren. Kurz nach dem niederschmetternden Befund beginnt er auf einer Palliativstation, seine Gedanken und Ängste zu notieren. Dabei konfrontiert er sich und den Leser mit dem, was meist ausgeklammert wird. Was ist der Tod? Was ist das Ich im Angesicht des drohenden Endes? Radikal ehrlich und ohne religiösen Trost zeigt sich Wolfgang Bergmann in seinen Ängsten und Zweifeln – und auch in den Momenten, in denen er überraschend Frieden findet. Wolfgang Bergmann starb kurz nach Vollendung dieses Textes.
