Günter Zint: “Tomi Ungerer in Hamburg”

The new exhibition “Tomi Ungerer in Hamburg” can be seen in the Erotic Art Museum in cooperation with the Sankt Pauli Museum and the Multiple Box Gallery from Monday – Friday from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm.

About Tomi Ungerer: Jean Thomas aka. Tomi Ungerer is a graphic designer, writer and illustrator. He is best known for his children’s books and his controversial sketchbook “Guardian Angel of Hell”. Kiez fan and Domenica worshiper Tomi Ungerer was often in Hamburg in the 1980s, preferably in the district of St. Pauli. For generations the average mortal, however, was granted only by the hour, becoming a permanent resident for the Alsatian artist in 1984 for three months. He moved to the world-famous Herbertstraße as a subtenant. Numerous photos, sketches, drawings, letters and notes taken at this time, documented and collected by the well-known neighborhood photographer Günter Zint, are impressive exhibits of intimate depictions of everyday life and brothel life in Domenica Niehoff’s “House 7b” in the Herbert street.
