Illustration • 'Hate is What we Need' - Facsimile Edition of a hand-painted, one-of-a-kind book with Trump's statements Ward SCHUMAKER c/o MARGARETHE HUBAUER

27.03.2018 • On February 19th, 2018 – 'Presidents' Day' in the US – Ward Schumaker announced the publication of a facsimile edition of his hand-painted one-of-a-kind book, Hate is What we Need, a collection of the words of President Trump and his friends.

"I feel grateful that Chronicle Books will give my book, which I thought would only be seen by family and friends, a wider audience." The book’s publication date is 27 March, but one can order in advance at chroniclebooks.com as well as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or (in Europe) at Abrams & Chronicle Books.

Ward Schumaker's afterword in the facsimile edition: I am an artist, a painter – of books. Big, messy, one-of-a-kind, hand-painted books. Frequently containing stenciled lettering, sloppy calligraphy, approaching and often accomplishing incomprehensibility.

Subject of these books? Beauty, for the most part, but including snippets of spiritual texts, fragments of dreams, and apparently irrelevant and/or inscrutable instructions. Not for the reader in search of plot, betterment, or popular imagery. And nothing political. Never anything...

Illustration • Animation for LGBTQ New York and further animated photos and Gifs by illustrator Louisa Bergman c/o MARGARETHE HUBAUER

27.03.2018 • Louisa Bergman c/o MARGARETHE HUBAUER was commissioned with an animation of the NYC LGBTQ (The Center) and for the MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority) NYC to be used in subway trains and on the sides of buses in the five boroughs of NYC. She will soon also be on display at the NYC Museum of Transportation.

Zu ihren Gifs sagt Louisa Bertman: "I truly believe in using animated gifs as a fantastic tool for social and political voice in direction to social media/advertisement and advocacy. Especially for advertisement. I love moving pictures and the challenge of coming up with the concept of what’s important to move (ie if it’s just walking or an eye blink – or if it’s more intricate – but what’s the purest point of the concept and the reasoning behind the movement).''
