Manfred Bockelmann’s works, his black-and-white portraits, touch the viewer so directly and deeply that it sparks something that hasn’t been sparked so far: tears of sorrow for the children who no one had been able to cry for because all the others were dead already. 

“The artist does relentless grief work, for himself and for us, the viewers, with such sobriety that, without warning, it drove tears to my eyes and held me spellbound as if I were hypnotised.”

André Heller
