The year 2020, classified according to the Chinese zodiac signs, was the year of the rat. For his artist book "The Red Year", Johannes Wohnseifer took up the linguistic similarity of "rat" and "red" in English and edited the red annual calendar of a Japanese retail chain, each with 52 red drawings and stamp prints. Published in a numbered and signed edition of only seven copies, it is a one-off sketchbook that is kept in a red half-linen case with an embossed title, a color photo pasted in and the accompanying imprint.
