Into the Wind!
Children´s book illustrations from the Nordic Countries

Connected to the festival, kulturkind is organizing an exhibition of children´s book illustrations together with the Nordic House Iceland: Sixteen illustrators from eight countries show their work with the theme “Into the Wind!”.

For the first time, outstanding children´s book artists and illustrators from Åland, Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and from the people of the Sámi will be shown in a joint exhibition. Their work shows imagery between great tradition, outstanding technical realization and striking high artistic expression.

The exhibition with almost 60 original illustrations and handsigned prints is premiering in the Humboldt Library Berlin. It will be shown from 26 May until 15 July 2016 with an accompanying program for day-care groups, schoolclasses and adults. Afterwards the exhibition is scheduled to tour through the German-speaking regions and the Nordic countries until 2018.
