Geschichten aus der Zukunft
A science-comic-project for the "Wissenschaftsjahr 2016/2017". Together with Philipp Schrögel i did several storytelling-workshops with kids in which they should try to imagine the world in 50 years concerning the scientific progresses of mankind and the changes of the environment in the future. I took several of these stories and ideas and made a couple of comics and illustrations out of them that were now released as a booklet called GESCHICHTEN AUS DER ZUKUNFT by "Wissenschaft im Dialog".

Erika Fuchs Haus
Re-design of the sculptures in front of the Erika-Fuchs-Haus in Schwarzenbach/Saale. I created a little panel-sequence about some alien-like guy stealing a book, amost getting caught by his earthling opponent. Each sculpture represents a comic-page and you can walk around it and see the scene in an other perspective.
(spraypaint on polished steel, 2015)
The Erika Fuchs Haus was opened in 2015. It is the first comic-museum in germany and focuses especially on the work and life of Dr. Erika Fuchs.
Erika Fuchs, née Petri (7 December 1906 in Rostock – 22 April 2005 in Munich), was a German translator. She is largely known in Germany due to her translations of American Walt Disney cartoons, especially Carl Barks's stories about Duckburg and its inhabitants. Many of her creations (re)entered the German language, and her followers today recognize her widely quoted translations as standing in the tradition of great German-language light poetry such as by Heinrich Heine, Wilhelm Busch, and Kurt Tucholsky. Unlike the English originals, her translations included many hidden quotes and literary allusions. As Fuchs once said, "You can't be educated enough to translate comic books". (wikipedia)
