Haus der Graphischen Sammlung – an exhibition by the Museum für Neue Kunst
For Christoph Meckel (1935-2020), who was known as a writer, the visual arts played just as important a role as literature throughout his life. From the post-war years to the globalised world, Meckel commented on contemporary events as an accusatory observer. He described his graphic oeuvre as a "world comedy".
The exhibition shows for the first time his large-format woodcuts from the early 1960s as well as the series of etchings "Universal Declaration of Human Rights" and "The Rights of the Child".
