“it was a dream of kurt zein and mine to create a 2 x 3 metre etching. we are offering the first attempt. although this work has evolved to become autonomous as a printed graphic and drawing, we shouldn’t forget that it is actually an architectural drawing of my theatre project, the orgien mysterien theater (theatre of orgies and mysteries). this after the representational picture of a deposition from the cross. organs, nerve tracts and bones are spaces, streets and paths of a subterranean theatre in which actions take place”.
