Originals before 1950

Hans Ernis’ philosophy as an artistically active ambassador:
to rejoice and to be useful.
«Worthy is what is useful to mankind. Simple concepts such as joy and usefulness, connected with art, make us today suspicious. For simplicity’s sake.»

Quote from Hans Erni in the book “Zeitzeuge Hans Erni” by Karl Bühlmann, Verlag Neue Zürcher Zeitung, 2009.
