ABOUT the ARTWORK:

“THE AMERICAN? WAY” series by Herwig Maria Stark

Who does not know Popeye, Mickey Mouse, Superman, Daisy Duck, Hulk, Fritz the Cat, Yosemite Sam – to name just some of the stars of the comic-genre?

The comic genre is responding for a long time on the trends and diversifying needs of a changing society and deals with issues such as racism, poverty, drug addiction, war, etc.

In the series „THE AMERICAN? WAY” I question whether the real society is a replica or model for the comic genre?

Is the desire of the „Little Man“ to be a superhero in society now the model for the figure of the „Superman“, or do the attributes of „Superman“ wake the longing to be like he is?

The from the beginning of the USA developed „American Way of Life“, characterized by optimism, activity, individualism, love of freedom and the pursuit of wealth according to the motto „COST WHAT IT MAY!“ – worthwhile?

Neue Serie – THE AMERICAN? WAY

THE AMERICAN? WAY

Wer kennt nicht Popeye, Mickey Mouse, Superman, Daisy Duck, Hulk, Fritz the Cat, Yosemite Sam – um nur einige der Stars des Comic-Genre zu nennen.

Das Comic-Genre reagiert über eine lange Zeit auf die Strömungen und verändernden Bedürfnisse einer sich wandelnden Gesellschaft und setzt sich mit Problemen wie Rassismus, Armut, Drogensucht, Krieg, etc. auseinander.

In der Serie „THE AMERICAN? WAY“ hinterfrage ich, ob die reale Gesellschaft eine Nachbildung oder Vorbild für das Comic-Genre ist?

Ist die Sehnsucht des „Kleinen Mannes“ ein Superheld in der Gesellschaft zu sein nun das Vorbild für die Figur des „Superman“, oder wecken die Eigenschaften des „Superman“ die Sehnsucht.

Der seit Bestehen der USA sich entwickelte „American Way of Life“, geprägt von Optimismus, Aktivität, Individualismus, Freiheitsliebe und dem Streben nach Wohlstand nach dem Motto „Koste es was es wolle!“ – erstrebenswert?
