Heinrich Hoffmann’s gruesome and whimsical Der Struwwelpeter has reflected and influenced German popular culture since its publication in 1845. These stories are also a rich source for 21st century political and social commentary for artists working across the globe in a variety of disciplines.
Beate Zekorn-von-Bebenburg, Struwwelpeter Museum Director, spoke with New York City-based choreographer Sameena Mitta; Berlin-based street artist Lacuna; and Boulder-based theatermaker Amanda Berg Wilson about Struwwelpeter’s impact beyond its original context and how they have each accessed the stories to reimagine contemporary politics and morality.
