From the early ‘90s onwards, Holtermann has written extensively on behalf of numerous major cultural institutions and listed companies; prose, poetry, columns, copy and commercials. A recurring theme in Holtermann’s writings is nightlife history, but he has also co-written several books on design and culture.
Early on in his career Holtermann began writing texts about the people he encountered, ranging from notes and fragments to elaborate character descriptions and short stories. This project stretched over 30 years and contains writings about over 3 000 people.
Another unique project of his are the “Therapy walks” that he arranges, highly innovative and interactive guided tours through various parts of Stockholm, wherein Holtermann shares stories about personal experiences he’s had at the sites along the way. Within the framework of “Therapeutic Pictionary” he further illustrates reflections about life and all the situations that arise when people meet. These illustrations can be found on Instagram under the hashtag #therapeutic_pictionary.
