Article: mare

February 1, 2010

“Man as Aquarium” is the title of a ten-page article about ocean lover Fritz Kahn in “mare–the magazine of the seas” (issue 78, February/March 2010). Whereas Kahn’s man-machine analogies are the focus of the Fritz Kahn monograph and exhibition, Uta von Debschitz introduces a less recognized, but particularly charming subject in this article: Kahn’s human-sea-analogies. They are illustrated with remarkable findings from Kahn’s works and correspondence, and by seven of the most beautiful maritime illustrations with unconventional original captions.
