The last ones, we can’t stop thinking about Karl Heinz. The caretaker asked us to leave two hours earlier. In the park, candles float on the see for him, and it is as always: too late. The wonderful „Parkhaus“, curator, who was so tirelessly committed to art, to artists, died on Sunday. And white roses lie scattered on the flowerbeds. We played Birds Lament by Moon Dog, talked about the eternal life that exists only in remembering. Unbelievable, Karl Heinz has left us.
Stephen Torton, Basquiats assistent shares my experience that the artist is a hostage of Dr. Dieter Buchhart, the world’s leading Basquiat expert. His art-historical colonial master was a little boy when SAMO© and I discussed Hitler with Alan Baruch Bermowitz (Suicide, NY). Hitler placed himself above the 10 Commandments, so Jean places him above the tent of the Ark of the Covenant, one of his Substitute for God´s law. Photo of a house wall, ©Fernando Natalici, 1980.
Stanley Moss published favourite recipes from the NYC New Wave scene in 1980. Michael Holman, Tina L`hotsky, Amos Poe, Anita Sarko, Basquiat a.o.. Only for Basquiat’s cryptic contribution, no food had to be bought. Stan has published Basquiat’s artistic camouflage recipe and didn’t know it til today. Mixing well in the only way that makes sense: upside down. STAGNANCY: his surface that confirms the clichés, black artist, wild, chaotic,intuitive “ primitive“ art, which he used to camouflaged his hidden narratives. They let him become a catalyst for the GOD DOG evolution. Gods? The inventor of civilisation from Africa. The Metropolitan Museum is currently showing the exhibition „The African Origin of Civilisation“. Dogs: thier descendants.

BLÄSSE performing with Arleen Schloss from NYC. It was so cold, our breath turned to mist, even the one coming out of my sax. And then the Hard Core Punks pulled the plug. Fucking avantgarde, but I didn’t get beaten up like I did in Hamburg’s Deichtorhallen when I was the go-go girl for the band Liebesgier. On the left at the Mini Moog, 14-year-old Alexander von Borsig, now on tour with his wife Danielle de Piciotto, she had the idea of the Love Parade as a demonstration.

1979 Bathroom NYC → 2022 NRW Forum Düsseldorf: the Video with the the Sax-lines SAMO© and I invented.
On the occasion of the MTW Awards, the NRW Forum Düsseldorf is showing six videos as part of Flowers from the Underground. They document how actors from the field of independent music – post-punk, new wave, industrial and electronic – explored these new technical and narrative possibilities in the 1980s, creating unexpected connections between art, music and film. Video S-Bahn Berlin, music BlÄSSE „Do you love saxophone“ is part of it. The Sax-lines SAMO© and I invented in Arleen Schloss bathroom, Broome Street, while she was working in her studio, so we didn’t disturb her at work. The record I send to New York 1981 and Glenn O`Brien wrote a critic. „Lieben Sie Saxofon“ the German Titel. Vernissage, November 5.

arte.tv the German-French culture channel 2011: „This is no ordinary suitcase, this is possibly a work of art. With a handle to carry it, Basquiat scribbled something on it“. And then the usual tale, with the degrading tonality: Gutter, graffiti, gallery, heroin, death, the undisciplined black to stupid to enjoy his millions. The contribution was to be broadcast four times. It was not even repeated, I prevented this. „The Bombing of Basquiat“ Jonathan Weinberg called this kind of degrading reporting at the expense of the deceased.
