over the hill, into the castle and back in history / 1

Yesterday I went to the museum "Schloss Tenneberg" with a collection of dolls in Waltershausen. That made me think about the connection of dolls and illustration. Much more as toys dolls are images of the "ideal child" in different times and societies and a view on the it´s world - and cultural history of childhood. You can see some examples in the pictures below....

That depiction of childhood is one point - the other is the similarity between develloping a character for a children book. The face, the figure, the personality - and the animation, the moves of the body parts are alike.

I like the old dolls and their parts as well for their strange asthetic that influence my work as well. And I was surprised that I was really not amazed by my own childhoods dolls. The "ideal child" - what is it today and for tomorrow?

The "Kurztheaterspektakel" - short theatre festival took place in the "Kulturbahnhof - an old railwaystation in Jena and was a an inspiring event. The huge pictures infront of the people faces are the masks I made for the piece "Melancholie".
