National Writers Union
Serge Hollerbach presented his new book From the Personal Point of View, collection of essays on the theme of art, literature and society.
“It is indeed very difficult to find reasons for optimism in the turbulent world of today, with many wars going on, genocides, corruption, population explosion and global warming. Yet… this optimism cannot be called naïve because it is existentially abstract and life enhancing. It is the glass that is always half full and never half empty,” ~ Serge Hollerbach, From the Personal Point of View
From the Personal Point of View is a collection of essays – paradoxical and contradictive answers of famous American artist on the main questions of contemporary art and society. All essays were illustrated by the author - his best reflections upon the City of Big Apple.

After the war he immigrated to the U.S. He went from being a worker at a tie-making factory to an academician of the National Academy of Design and a national award laureate.
