Venue: Kunsttempel Kassel, Friedrich-Ebert-Straße 177

The third edition of the Festival des Grafischen Erzählens (Festival for Graphic Narration) presents for the first time orginal drawings and sketches by the graphic artist Hans Hillmann (1925-2014) from his classic illustration of Dashiell Hammett’s story “Fly Paper”. Hillmann, whose personal papers are maintained by the documenta archiv, is one of the most important German graphic designers and illustrators. His works were shown in the design and graphics category at documenta 3 in 1964.

An event organized by the Literaturhaus Nordhessen e. V. in cooperation with the documenta archiv and the School of Art and Design Kassel.
