Publisher Description

This is a fixed layout comic ebook: it's an artists' book telling the true story about another strange 'project' by visual artists Ondrej Brody & Kristofer Paetau. Brody & Paetau are 'conceptual artists' and friends who make weird, provocative art. At least they think it's art… Their artistic strategy is often embarrassing in its literacy and straightforwardness. The criticality of their works could be described as ‘homeopathic’ in the sense of ‘let like be cured by like’. Their 'art theory' is based on a misunderstood and distorted quotation of a phrase in Adolf Hitler's 'Mein Kampf': "When an artist tries to rebel against the iron logic of Power, he comes into conflict with principles to which he himself owes his existence as artist. And so his action against Power must lead to his own downfall. Of course, Power can be mocked for a certain time, but its’ revenge will not fail to appear."
