Dierkes, Paul

(1907 - 1968)

Paul Dierkes was a sculptor and graphic designer, working in post-war Berlin. For his sculptures he worked mostly with stone and wood. Apart from autonomous projects, he also worked with architects like Egon Eiermann, Peter Poelzig and Sep Ruf. A prominent example of these collaborations is Eiermann's Gedächtniskirche, for which Dierkes made the crucifix, amongst other work.
