Florida, and Miami in particular, is home to some of the world’s most absurd human behavior. So there’s no better place for a collection of the work of Tomi Ungerer, who described himself as “an archivist of human absurdity.” Ungerer, the French artist and illustrator who lent his work to disparate projects such as children’s books and a tome about adult sexuality, is having a moment in Miami. The documentary Far Out Isn’t Far Enough: The Tomi Ungerer Story debuted at the Miami International Film Festival in 2013 to a warm reception. And now the World Erotic Art Museum (1205 Washington Ave., Miami Beach) presents a collection of work from Ungerer’s 1969 book Fornicon, which depicts sex in a variety of detached, downright strange states. As the New York Times Book Review put it, these pictures are “definitely not for children.”
