Exhibition review: Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

February 10, 2010

The FAZ dedicates half of the page titled “Research and Teaching” to a review of the exhibition Fritz Kahn – Maschine Mensch. The author describes Kahn as a “magician of popular science”, his “always surprising and often hilarious visual metaphors are disconcerting, but also fascinating.” As example, she mentions images like “Man eats 1400 times his weight in 70 years” or “daring but delicious, The radish sandwich as cerebellar model”. A large image that illustrates the congruence of the automobile and the ear was selected to illustrate the article.
