A trained engineer, Hans Uhlmann began working on sculptures in the mid-1920s. Besides teaching at the Technical University, he attended an evening life drawing studio, where he met artist Jeanne Mammen. In 1932 the artist friends journeyed to Moscow together. Uhlmann was arrested during a pamphlet action against the Nazi regime in October 1933 and convicted of “intent to commit high treason”. After some weeks under Gestapo arrest, he was imprisoned until May 1935. In prison he produced the Tegel sketchbook: drawings of wire heads as designs for sculptures, which Uhlmann secretly realised parallel to his bread and butter job at Krupp Registrierkassen GmbH in the years 1935 to 1945.
