Digression #6

Janosch is celebrating his 90th birthday and the Caricature Museum Krems is helping celebrate with originals from Mr. Wondrak!

Wondrak - the Janosch for adults as well as a popular hero from ZEIT magazine - is what his creator Janosch would like to be: An antihero who seems to do everything wrong and, yet, due to his unconventional life philosophy, is always right. The things he does are hardly ever sensible and yet they are always expedient - because Wondrak has no goal. He is always on the right path and his life knows no limits, as he sees possibility in everything.

On July 25, 2013, ZEIT magazine announced Wondrak’s comeback with a weekly contribution in ZEIT magazine. According to Janosch, the clear focus of the drawings is himself: “Wondrak, the new superstar”. In November 2019, his last contribution appeared, titled "Mr. Janosch, how does one say goodbye?"

Curator: Gottfried Gusenbauer, artistic director of the Caricature Museum Krems
