„Manchmal träume ich, ich bin der Mond, der um die Erde kreist“
“Sometimes I dream that I am the moon orbiting the earth” - pictures, books & objects by Manfred Schlüter. Manfred Schlüter was born in Kellinghusen in 1953. Since he was 25, he has lived and worked in the former village school in Hillgroven, a community of 86 people on the west coast of Schleswig-Holstein. Initially he illustrated books with texts by others, illustrated stories by Michael Ende, Achim Bröger and Boy Lornsen. At some point the desire to write myself grew. In 1991 he published his own poems and stories. Books with his images and texts have been published in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, the Netherlands, Great Britain, France, Japan, China, Taiwan and South Korea and have received multiple awards. Originally he actually wanted to become a painter. But his path led him through illustration into the world of literature. Today, Manfred Schlüter wanders as an author, illustrator and freelance artist between worlds that, for him, belong inseparably together. Manfred Schlüter was awarded the Friedrich Hebbel Prize in 1983. He received scholarships from the Künstlerhaus Edenkoben and the Cranach Foundation (Lutherstadt Wittenberg). In 2008 he was awarded the Friedrich Bödecker Prize for his complete work. In 2017 he received the Dithmarschen District Culture Prize.
