The Colour out of SpaceExhibition with illustrations about H. P. Lovecraft by Andreas Hartung

31 May to 03 JuneKulturzentrum E-Werk , Cloakroom Main Hall (Saal)


Thu 12 p.m.–7 p.m.
Fri/Sat 10 a.m.–7 p.m.

In an unusual and atmospherically confined setting, Andreas Hartung exhibits his illustrations for the horror comic image show The Colour out of Space. Equipped with torches, visitors to E-Werk explore places untrodden by human feet... H. P. Lovecraft’s overwrought and adjective-laden prose is replaced by wordless dread as the slow, inexorable decay and the lethargic helplessness of the protagonists are translated into a new medium. This is an adaptation that takes the story’s atmosphere and horror seriously, celebrating them – their most grotesque elements included.
