Stefan Wewerka (born 1928) is an 'uomo universale', an uncomfortable pedagogue, a bringer of enlightenment. In addition to his practical work as an architect-his competition entries have had a lasting effect on architectural discourse-he has alienated architecture photographically or with the aid of traditional artistic techniques, has written books, has painted pictures, has made films and object art. Wewerka became known to a wider public in the 60s by the artistic allenation of chairs and other everyday objects, which he sawed up or distorted in order to undermine familiar images subversively. He also did not leave architectural 'high culture' untouched. This catalogue delivers an extensive overview of his work in the fields of architecture, graphic and design. More than 240 illustrations and seven texts in english and german show not only his work, but also Wewerka's unique life and personality.
