... sie soll nur hundert Jahr in einen tiefen Schlaf fallen.“

"Macht Kaputt Was Euch Kaputt Mach"

"Radios laufen, Platten laufen,
Filme laufen, TV's laufen,
Autos kaufen,Häuser kaufen,
Möbel kaufen, Reisen kaufen
- Wofür?

Macht kaputt, was euch kaputt macht!
Macht kaputt, was euch kaputt macht!

Züge rollen, Dollars rollen,
Maschinen laufen, Menschen schuften,
Fabriken bauen, Maschinen bauen,
Motoren bauen, Kanonen bauen.
- Für wen?

Macht kaputt, was euch kaputt macht!
Macht kaputt, was euch kaputt macht!

Bomber fliegen, Panzer rollen,
Polizisten schlagen, Soldaten fallen,
Die Chefs schützen, Die Aktien schützen,
Das Recht schützen, Den Staat schützen
Vor uns!

Macht kaputt, was euch kaputt macht!
Macht kaputt, was euch kaputt macht!"


song by Ton Steine Scherben.

"My aim is to be understood by everyone. ...

... I reject the 'depth' that people demand nowadays, into which you can never descend without a diving bell crammed with cabbalistic bullshit and intellectual metaphysics. This expressionistic anarchy has got to stop... A day will come when the artist will no longer be this bohemian, puffed-up anarchist but a healthy man working in clarity within a collectivist society."

George Grosz

"Der Gott der Stadt"

"Auf einem Häuserblocke sitzt er breit.
Die Winde lagern schwarz um seine Stirn.
Er schaut voll Wut, wo fern in Einsamkeit
Die letzten Häuser in das Land verirrn.

Vom Abend glänzt der rote Bauch dem Baal,
Die großen Städte knien um ihn her.
Der Kirchenglocken ungeheure Zahl
Wogt auf zu ihm aus schwarzer Türme Meer.

Wie Korybanten-Tanz dröhnt die Musik
Der Millionen durch die Straßen laut.
Der Schlote Rauch, sie Wolken der Fabrik
Ziehn auf zu ihm, wie Duft von Weihrauch blaut.

Das Wetter schwelt in seinen Augenbrauen.
Der dunkle Abend wird in Nacht betäubt.
Die Stürme flattern, die wie Geier schauen
Von seinem Haupthaar, das im Zorne sträubt.

Er streckt ins Dunkel seine Fleischerfaust.
Er schüttelt sie. Ein Meer von Feuer jagt
Durch eine Straße. Und der Glutqualm braust
Und frisst sie auf, bis spät der Morgen tagt."

poem by Georg Heym, 1911

... united with it, she is the mother of the arts and the origin of marvels."

"Ultimately photography is about who you are. ...

...It's the seeking of truth in relation to yourself. And seeking truth becomes a habit."

XVI Bienal de Arte Fotográfica Brasileira em Cores

The XVI Bienal de Arte Fotográfica Brasileira em Cores is hosted by the Confederação Brasileira de Fotografia and the foto-club Grupo Amigos da Fotografia de Ribeirão Preto.

This Biennale is only for members of brazilian foto-clubs. Yes this isn't a joke, I'm a member of a foto-club*smile* For me it's a great fun, because the people of my foto-club are marvelous! I'm in the Fotoclube de Santa Catarina.

I've participated with four pictures. No, unfortunately I havn't won, but two of my pictures are accepted ("Aceitações"). That means that they're well aimed, but "not good enough" for winning. No, I'm not sad. For me it's a honor, that my pictures are placed.


The winner-pictures (the best 3 and the "Menções Honrosas") and the accepted pictures are exposed in Ribeirão Preto - SP (Opening days: 06.06. - 30.06.2009 - Location:
MIS - Museu da Imagem e do Som - Casa da Cultura de Ribeirão Preto ) and will be published in the catalogue of this Biennale.
Here are my pictures on the page from the Confederação Brasileira de Fotografia.
Yes the quality of my pictures on their page is very bad, this is very sad for me, because the originals are much better:

"the dynamic of inactivity" - "A DINÂMICA PASSIVA"
"study II" - "ESTUDO II"

"I know I've seen you before...

...You bored me then and now you just bore me some more
The clock gets locked, locked
Tick tick, tick-tick-tick, stop, stop!
And now I can't get full
Please could you take my shakes
My eyes feel spikey and small
And I can't get no picture on them at all
I can't get no picture on them at all

You love, you love, you love
I hate the way you love
I hate the way you love"

The Kills, "I hate the way you love"
from the great album "No Wow"


"i hate the way you love - she", germany, 2005

Still in love.

You know my grandparents as a young couple.

And you don't believe, that they're still in love?

No problem, here's the proof:

"Here must all distrust be left behind;...

...all cowardice must be ended."

ogne viltà convien che qui sia morta."
