Now available with English translation...Following the traces of Thomas Mann I travelled to Munich and Venice for my diploma thesis and made a two-by-two-metre wheel object. The individual stratifications of ideas on which the novel "Death in Venice" is based, I transfered for this experimental object into a pictorial language. Artistic photographs and an artist book with a bookcase complete the ensemble.

"Frank Hennings interpretation of "Death in Venice", written by Thomas Mann in 1911, shows impressively the artistic confrontation with literature and wants to enable a closer look at the beauty of this work."
