Carlsen presents: Bernd Pfarr – Der Welt die Realität austreiben
Bernd Pfarr (1958–2004) is one of the most important visual storytellers ever to emerge from Germany: a distinctive illustrator, a masterful painter, and a brilliant author. Born in Frankfurt, he was especially well known for his character Sondermann, as well as for his elaborately painted cartoons for ZEITmagazin. In recognition of his comic artistry, Bernd Pfarr received the “Max und Moritz” Award for the Best German-language Comic Artist in 1998. He also illustrated numerous books by authors, including Elke Heidenreich. The exhibition “Der Welt die Realität austreiben” takes an in-depth look at Bernd Pfarr’s work.
