From the press text: “(…) For the duration of the exhibition, LAGE EGAL will become a bookstore/reading library named #TABS – TEMPORARY ARTIST’S BOOK SHOP where the public will be able to look through, peruse, and purchase books and editions. It will be a big celebration of the object book, ideated and made by artists. The book, as a specific artwork, will be displayed in its transgenic form and use, which includes word and image, sight and touch.”

I’m happy to be part of it with my little book Bist Du Glücklich?.

Nike of Berlin. Where’s the beer bike?


This made my day!

“Dear Christian, I enjoyed your little Berlin book with its big German question: bist du glücklich? I made some comments:

I like the lamp.

Rush hour reflections, hang on! Brussel Sprouts.

Unhappy, thirsty bunny. Her friend’s pubic bag hangs low. The hydrant is handy.

This is the Hamburg Crouch – like the Lambeth Walk in London.

The Berliner call them ‘Wannen’. Looks wet.

Plastic surgery.

The German question again.

Kunststück. No one notices.

Windows 95 + 11

Looks like copulation. Staged.

There must be something there!


Stairway to heaven

Fly, fly, fly away!

Staged in Arles?

Nice floor, tiled wall. Underground?

“Wir Kinder …”

A sunny Vienna corner

Rie ne va plus. I like the arrow heads.

Nike of Berlin. Where’s the beer bike?

Who stole the pole?


What’s going on?

Flower Power

Blind to Gentrification

Nancy tickled my fancy – Oh my charming Billy Boy.


Almost Escher

Homage to Andy.

The answer to the question! (Bauzaun is the clue)


Bronzed liberty

This is not the answer – love is!”
