Gustav Mesmer – Ikarus vom Lautertal, by Stefan Hartmaier (2018)


Published by Edition Patrick Frey –

I translated the DE>EN texts for this wonderful book about the remarkable outsider artist Gustav Mesmer, or the “Icarus of Lautertal” as he came to be called thanks to his life-long obsession with flying. His œuvre is an inexhaustible world unto itself, now presented in full to the public for the first time. The book includes essays by Lucienne Peiry, Juliane Stiegele and Franz Xaver Ott, as well as photographs by Franco Zehnder and Stefan Hartmaier.
