Quint Buchholz on the “Culture Stage”

In times of cancelled cultural events the Bavarian Broadcasting Service (Bayerischer Rundfunk) is communicating in different ways with those hungry for culture. On the newly created website “Culture Stage”, much is offered to entertain, inform and give incentive for reflection.

Right now, three pictures out of the newest books by Quint Buchholz are exhibited there, pictures from The Ocean Book (Insel-Bücherei) and To Everything There is a Season (Hanser). Three wonderful little texts, meditations on time and quietness by Niels Beintker, form the commentary.

It is definitely worth dropping by and having a little look around!

and The Ocean Book

“The Ocean Book”: An odyssey from Atlantis to Sardinia

A fascinating collection of texts about the many mysteries of the ocean, selected by Matthias Reiner and subtly illustrated by Quint Buchholz, was released by the Insel publishing house on March 9, 2020.

On 119 classily designed pages, authors as diverse as Plato and Thomas Mann, Axel Hacke and Judith Schalansky marvel at the everlasting sway of the waves, at lost islands, mighty monsters, fateful adventures, bourgeois beach vacations, and much more.

A many-facetted anthology and a beautiful gift book, as well as perfectly light vacation reading: A pirate’s chest filled with pictorial and narrative ocean treasures that manage to spark both yearning and awe.

„The sea is a space of yearning that fuels the desire for new horizons, and Buchholz, one of the best-known illustrators of the country and virtuoso of the shades of blue, knows its moods and light ambiance only too well.”
(Udo Watter for Süddeutsche Zeitung, 2020)

“Clever and gorgeous”

“To Everything There Is a Season”: Wise words on serenity

On March 9, 2020, Munich publisher Hanser released a new book by Quint Buchholz. “To Everything There Is a Season” pairs the most beautiful and catchy passage from a piece of famous wisdom literature with pictures that reveal surprising connections, offer a new perspective on the long-known, the tried and tested.

“To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven…” It is not only a deep sentiment of serenity that resonates in these well-known verses penned by King Solomon (Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8). There is also the hope of finding comfort and assurance in them, even in the darkest of moments. Quint Buchholz’s condensed picture narratives add a contemporary interpretation of this theme. Once more they point to the richness of life and the magic of slowing down, of pausing for a moment, of listening to the quiet voices and moods.

“For every line there is a picture, sometimes real, sometimes surreal: […] A tension-filled, poetic and comforting dialogue.”
(Niels Beintker for Culture Stage, Bavarian Broadcasting Service, 2020)
