The Doctor in the China Shop

An Almanac with 100 Chapters From My Life. Hans Jäger
Dr. Hans Jäger, a doctor and researcher, is one of the leading AIDS experts in Germany. This biographical almanac outlines his personal history, his travels and his relationship with contemporary art. David Hockney, Alec Soth, Edward Burtynsky and even Grayson Perry are some of the innovators in art referenced by Jäger. The book is invigorated by a broad range of themes; narratives about architecture or regions line up associatively one beside the other. However, friends and family, colleagues and artists are the main protagonists populating these 100 chapters in the life of the “Doctor in the China Shop”.
