This is a picture of my grandpa after he came back from war in 1947. It was after he had lost his hearing on one ear as a tank fired its gun while he was crossing; after his appendix burst because his superiors thought he was simulating pain and didn‘t allow him treatment - which now again causes him pain and often prevents him from eating (don‘t think there‘s no price for what happens to you or what you do when you are young); after he spent a winter in a forest with 50 other prisoners of war, standing and regularly taking turns standing in the middle to not freeze, being shot at at random; after he saw his best friend shoot himself in the head saying „I‘m not going anywhere any more“; after he got lung disease from regularly eating the leftover food of a hospital for lung treatments; after he received many bomb splinters that now occasionally appear and make him bleed. After he suffered and caused much pain. After all this. Like him, his whole generation was traumatized. Like him, most of them just worked to forget, building the Germany we know today. And like him, if they lived to remember, they later woke up from their nightmares, with memories in their bodies and souls, suddenly frightened and frightening their families when they first saw these strong men cry at 70. My grandpa was 15 and a half years old when he was sent to war and 20 when he came back. „Even the best war isn’t good“, he says.

Grandma 👵 (turning 89 tomorrow) cut her finger. Grandpa 👴 (92) complains.
👴: You hurt yourself too often. You should wait for me. You are constantly bleeding for some reason.
👵: Perhaps it‘s because I have too much blood?
👴: You don’t have too much blood. You just cut yourself. 😆

@appropriateallemotions Muntean/Rosenblum at @ebensperger_rhomberg Salzburg. Different story. A bit pop, but well worth the little bikeride. #painting #contemporaryart #poetry #munteanrosenblum Didn’t quite get their new project „Appropriate all Emotions“ though. Pictures and videos of people with fake wounds, I guess. Ok. 🤔 Why not? 🙃 Kann man machen. Did you see „Show me your wound“, the show I co-curated at @dommuseumwien ? 😐

Baselitz and Lederhosen; A can by #Rauschenberg and sniffing dogs; VALIE EXPORT and the ORF, a gallery director bending his knees, a bit of Anselm Kiefer and a bookshelf, a @hansulrichobrist , black limousines and flashlights. Such were the sights at the one and only original Galerie @thaddaeusropac - definitely one of #Salzburg ‘s fanciest places.

Salzburg @summeracademy.at started. First assignment for our great students: write about one show - or work - at #museumdermodernesalzburg overnight. A shot from the #sigalitlandau as the cover. And also some impressions from the fortress Hohensalzburg where classes take place.

Donno who made it, but it’s my favorite piece at the Art Academy open doors in Munich. It’s a multiple stuck unpretentiously in the corridor and it reads: „You are afraid, you are overwhelmed, you don’t know what to do and this doesn’t help.“ - where I read „this“ as „this poster“ - of course. It’s simple and easily understood. But it also refers to art history, because obviously the French as well as the chosen typeface emulates the style Magritte used for writing „Ceci n‘est pas une pipe“ in his painting La trahison des images. It‘s also contemporary, because it emulates the kind of motivational posters that hang in offices and even private homes, while somehow pointing out the vacuity of their promise to help you live better #magritte #cecinestpasmagritte #cecinestpas

Grandpa Eugen on his 92nd birthday arguing with grandma Anneliese (89) about having their grandson Klaus take a picture. He likes photographs. She thinks we should look at old pictures where they are young instead of taking new ones. He still wants her on the picture though. And at one moment, just before she gets angry and breaks free, I think we can see she‘s flattered. #villagelife #grandpa #grandma #photographs #souvenirs #beauty #love #wassichliebtdasnecktsich #grandson #familylife #schwäbischealb #dorfleben #aging

Rekindling my teenage nostalgia. I used to go for long walks in my hometown Meersburg at night, looking for something to happen, and - as nothing ever happened - smoking an occasional bidi or clove cigarette, reading Rimbaud and dreaming of my future as a writer. Now this future has come. Somehow (there‘s a lot of life hiding in this „somehow“). Back in Meersburg, I go for a walk again. And I still wait for something to happen. The difference is: instead of smoking and reading, I now take pictures. Do they convey the nostalgia? #nostalgia #meersburg #lakeofconstance #lakeconstance #number1  #night #blue
