This 48-page hard-cover catalog was published in conjunction with the solo exhibition of Franz Hitzler at Die Galerie, Frankfurt, from 29 June to 2 September 2006. This catalog, edited and compiled by Elke Mohr and featuring texts by the artist Hans M. Bachmayer (18 Sept. 1920 – 11 Jan. 2013), Thomas Hölscher, and Katharina Ponnier, was possibly the first project I ever worked on for Die Galerie.
Welcome to Est. 1999, the official blog of Abraham Translations. As is perhaps easy to surmise, the name of this blog reflects the year that Abraham Translations was founded.
It all began with the correction of a few texts that had been translated by another time-pressed translator. Within the year, translating had become my main source of income; now, it has long been the only way I put bacon on the table.
I am rather proud of many of the projects on which I have worked. Est. 1999, basically, is a visual confirmation of past projects, a blowing of my own horn, a presentation of translator-related topics, and an occasional departure into other areas that I deem worthy of presenting. Enjoy.
