It will be a big celebration of the object book, ideated and made by artists.

I’m happy to be part of it with my little book Bist Du Glücklich?.
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.
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?
Blind to Gentrification
Nancy tickled my fancy – Oh my charming Billy Boy.
Homage to Andy.
The answer to the question! (Bauzaun is the clue)
This is not the answer – love is!”
