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.

LOUISE NEVELSON – Creativity shaped my life

(ISBN-10: 3925782826, ISBN-13: 978-3925782824)
DIE GALERIE, Frankfurt, published this catalog to accompany their career review of the great American sculptor Louise Nevelson. The show ran from 5 June - 6 September 2014. The 120-page, bilingual (German and English) catalog included an introduction by Peter Femfert and texts by Louise Nevelson; Bruno Corà, the director of the Cassino Museo Arte Contemporanea; Dr. Christoph Grunenberg, the director of the Kunsthalle Bremen; Dr. Andrea Stoll; and Damiano Femfert.

The on-line journal Articulating had the following to say about the artist and show: "The work of American artist Louise Nevelson, one of the most significant sculptresses* of the 20th century, has left an indelible mark on the history of art. Despite the multitude of influences that shine through her art, Nevelson's work defies any specific art historical categorisation. The exhibition LOUISE NEVELSON - Creativity shaped my life in Frankfurt's DIE GALERIE is a retrospective journey of the artist's work in all its essential facets. [...]"
*I can't help but wonder: Does one really still refer to women sculptors as sculptresses? Most women I know would claim otherwise. What's your opinion?
