Currently on at Gestalten, Bockumenta is an exhibition celebrating the release of illustrator Frank Höhne’s new book, ‘The Book of Bock’ (which translates in English to Book of Joy). The exhibition consists of a series of pieces from the book, featuring Höhne’s colourful, often child like doodlings on reality. Here are some examples:

Previously unacquainted with Höhne’s work I really enjoyed his whimsical perspective on human nature, which although often quite dark and complex is portrayed in a simple, good humoured way. The exhibition runs until the 16th of September, and to finish here is a video of the artist himself in action.
