Im Herbst 2004 beauftragte DER SPIEGEL bei mir einen Entwurf für das Titelbild zum Thema "Jammertal Ost".

Meine Zeichnung entstand in Anlehnung an Saul Steinbergs berühmtem Cover "View from 9th Ave" für den "New Yorker" aus den Siebziger Jahren und illustriert, wie
der Boden unter verschiedenen Wahrzeichen des Ostens – Brandenburger Tor, Fernsehturm am Alex, Dresdner Frauenkirche, Brocken, Leipziger Messeturm und
Plattenbauten –, wegbricht.
Im Hintergrund erkennt man man "westliche" Wahrzeichen wie die Münchner Frauenkirche oder den Kölner Dom sowie "den Rest der Welt".

Bei der Arbeit an dem Bild wurde ich von einem Filmteam des SPIEGEL in meinem Atelier gefilmt. Dieses Material wurde für einen Videoclip von SPIEGEL TV verwendet, das während der Ausstellung "Die Kunst des SPIEGEL - Titel-Illustrationen aus fünf Jahrzehnten" vom 5. November 2004 bis 23. Januar 2005 in den Deichtorhallen Hamburg gezeigt wurde.

Weitere Stationen der Ausstellungstournee waren Berlin, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, München und zum Abschluss im Januar 2006 das "Museum of American Illustration" in New York.

KICK-ASS > DER SPIEGEL Documentary


Cover Art for DER SPIEGEL Magazine
Der Spiegel Documentary

DER SPIEGEL, Germany's largest weekly news magazine, contracted a cover illustration on the topic of East-German disintegration in 2004 and included the process of creating the art in a TV documentary accompanying the art exhibition, "The Art of DER SPIEGEL."

THE COVER

D
ER SPIEGEL, Germany's largest and most influential weekly news magazine, contracted a cover illustration in the fall of 2004 on the topic of East-German disintegration.

I designed the image as an hommage to Saul Steinberg's famous 1970's "View from 9th Ave" cover for the New Yorker magazine. It shows prominent  Eastern landmarks colliding as the ground gives away.

My illustration on the topic of "Jammertal Ost" has
been created using ink, pencil, and the computer.


THE DOCUMENTARY


A film team from DER SPIEGEL had me filmed during the process of designing the illustration.

Extracts from that session were used for a SPIEGEL TV video clip which was shown at the well-known Deichtorhallen museum in November in an exhibition commemorating 50 years of SPIEGEL cover illustration art.

The exhibition started out in Hamburg, and then moved on to various German cities. It was also shown at the Museum of American Illustration in New York in January of 2006.
