Published by Edition Patrick Frey. Text by Emanuel Halpern.
This volume follows protagonists Hunn and Altermann through a Swiss-inspired dystopian-utopian sci-fi crime novel in prime noir style. Combining a range of genres, characters and themes, Halpern constructs an almost bewildering patchwork of religion, politics, art history, climate change and the environment.
Swiss artist Emanuel Halpern (born 1948) is an unlikely harbinger of the apocalypse. Inspired Friedrich Dürrenmatt, Halpern has created 50 large-scale colored pencil drawings that comically narrate the destruction of Dieselbrugg. Bold and graphic, this illustrated book presents a dark but colorful view of a modern world gone topsy-turvy.
