Eine deutsche Pittoreske

Du siehst den Boden, den Türgriff, eine Dose, die dir gehörte, als du ein Junge warst. Hier sind die Münzen, der Korb unterm Spiegel. Hier ist das klitzekleine hölzerne Hündchen an einem Stiel.

Eine deutsche Pittoreske ziseliert auf jeder Seite so viel Geschichte und Geschichten wie andernorts tausendseitige Epen.

I am the Resurrection

A little Easter greeting to you. The late Sebastian Horsley with a copy of my translation of his Dandy in the Underworld. It was published by Blumenbar in 2009. You can spend your short time astride the pit in all kinds of ways … if you have courage and joy in you, you can also pick up the book!

Helikopter Hysterie ZWO

Sieg-4_

With great pleasure Paul Paulun in his function as Senior Copy Editor of the Hubschrauberblog and I in my function as Supervisor Psychohistoric & Hermetic Research at the Erratik Institute Berlin accepted on behalf of Helikopter Hysterie ZWO the Golden Blogger Award 2019 in the category Wissenschaft Technik Forschung (WTF). Helicopter Hysterie ZWO was awarded as best blog. Let’s not forget: None of this would have been possible without the tireless and unreserved commitment of our spiritus rector Heinrich Dubel. Since 1991 the reincarnated Pegasos has been living as a rotorcraft of erratic knowledge production. We have him to thank for the constant traffic according to the sentence of Friedrich von Gottl-Ottlilienfeld that always prevails the state “that everything must take the way of traffic (Verkehr) before it comes to consumption (Verzehr)”. The motor is the rotor. Our whole enterprise serves such a tying to earths. Thank you.

Catalogue for the exhibition 5 is a different 1 by Réne Luckhardt at Galerie Bernd Kugler (Innsbruck / AUT). (Opening June 14th, 2018. 6 pm)

Luckhardt’s paintings are the artistic approach to a photograph of underground icon Marjorie Cameron (1922-1995). The Californian actress, visual artist, poet and occultist was and is the enigmatic protagonist of a counterculture whose influence can still be felt today. Luckhardt’s paintings dissect the black-and-white photograph of hers into innumerable variants. Inconspicuous details oft he photograph are transformed into painterly-graphic compositions in their own right and, in a surprising twist, rearranged in a sculptural and discursive way. The title 5 is a different 1 summarizes such an approach in the form of a slogan.
The work is inspired by Andy Warhol’s pop position Marilyn of a modern icon. From an almost void and ante-chamber of imagery, it is contrasted with this model of an angel of a very different kind. As a consequence it carries neither the name Marjorie, nor Cameron – what enters the stage is at best: Marjolyn.

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue with a short essay by Andreas L. Hofbauer in a limited edition of 150 copies. Artist and author will be present at the opening.

Die Schädel toter Ahnen, die man einstmals in offenen oder versteckten, dunkeln oder hellen Kammern aufgestellt hat, damit sie den Mitgliedern der Gemeinschaft schweigsam Gesellschaft leisten konnten, wandelten sich zu Masken, polierten Grabsteinen, Fotoalben, Videobotschaften, die kurz vor dem Ableben aufgezeichnet werden, und Social-Media-Accounts, die ihrer Wiederauferstehung nach dem Ende des Internets harren. Die mannigfaltigen Seelen haben sich entfernt, sich aber nicht verschlucken lassen.” (aus: Entfernte Seelen by ALH, in: Place Fantôme, Berlin/Paris 2018)
