Hundertwasser - Andreas Hirsch
Hundertwasser edited by Andreas Hirsch brings together works by Hundertwasser, photographs from his life, interviews with his contemporaries, and original quotations. Friedensreich Hundertwasser was a painter, environmentalist, philosopher, humanist, architect, and creator of original graphics, whose unique style appeals to a wide audience. An essay in words and pictures, this publication takes the reader on a journey in thirteen stages through Hundertwasser's life and work. It explores his native city Vienna in the post-war era, his studio, his ship, his travels across Europe, Japan, and the Pacific Rim, as well as his famously unconventional manifestos on mold, tree tenants, against nuclear energy and his two speeches against rationalism in architecture in the nude. Imaginatively designed to capture its subject's inimitable style, this book is a glorious tribute to an artist who appeals to people of all ages.
