Eastermessage via iPad © Briefschreiber.name
Crown. Beuys. Rabbit. For our eastermessage we quoted from Joseph Beuys, the famous german artist who brought the social aspect into art. 1982 at the Documenta VII in Kassel Joseph Beuys melted a copy of the crown from “Iwan the Terrible” and reshaped the material to a rabbit as a symbol of peace and folk art. With the eastermessage the illustrator Hermann Blum refers to the event.
How Beuys was going on in detail and what it has to do with easter you can read in the article ”Alle Macht den Hasomanen”, (All the power to the Hasomanen) from the german “TAZ” .
For his eastermessage Hermann tried out the app „Paper by Fifty Three“ for the first time. The sketch app was developed by a group of New Yorker filmmakers, designers and software engineers especially for the iPad. The great advantage of this app: from drawing up to publishing – you have no break in media, everything can be done on your iPad. We hope you like the result?
