Der Struwwelpeter

Faszination und Kinderschreck

To this day the Struwwelpeter (“Shock-headed Peter”) induces both fascination and shudders in its readers. Right on time for its 175th anniversary, the LUDWIGGALERIE is presenting the “funny stories and droll pictures” by the psychiatrist and poet Heinrich Hoffmann in all of their many facets. An entertaining and wittily illuminating exhibition and catalogue traces the creation of this world-famous illustrated book of stories, while also presenting numerous adaptions and variations. Since 1844 the book has inspired each generation to make its own Struwwelpeters, from oil paintings to comics, manga, and junk (punk) opera to Jan Böhmermann.
