Exhibition about the Jewish art dealer Max Stern, at the Stadtmuseum Düsseldorf until 30 January 2022. His escape to Canada saved him. The art dealer Alfred Flechtheim, disenfranchised and robbed, died impoverished in London in 1936.
What did it mean to be disenfranchised? These stickers give a hint of it.
Jewish shop! Anyone who buys here is photographed.
The Jew lives in this property. No Jew lives in this property.
The small ones were pasted on letters. Free propaganda: The workers have never been rich from the Jews, but the Jews have always been rich from the workers. If the war is to blame for the German people starving, then the Jew should also starve. The revolutionaries 1918 did not push the property of the private to the people, but the property of the people to foreign countries and to the Jew.

the day Karin Luner, Hoedecke student at Hochschule der Künste, Berlin and I decided to form a girl punk band. The night before we danced in the nightclubs of Düsseldorf. Florian Schneider-Esleben, Kraftwerk, the best dancer in town drove us in the Mercedes 600. Karin also lived in NYC, where she had drum lessons with Fred Maher, Lou Reed’s drummer. In May 1979 we started in Berlin with Beate Bartel, Sound technician at Radio station Free Berlin. Beate brought Gudrun Gut and Bettina Köster along, both previously played with the Berlin band DIN A Testbild. The Band name Mania D. was Beate`s idea. In October, Beate(Bass) SAMO© (Syntheziser) and I played at As, Broome Street. In November we were to play at TIER 3 in New York. SAMO© alone I played at As on Haloween, the night before the Beuys Retrospective in Guggenheim Museum. Members of Mania D. founded the bands Malaria!, Einstürzende Neubauten, Liason Dangeraux, Blässe/Düsseldorf, Die Krupps, played with LIEBESGIER and had a plethora of solo projects e.g. Gudrun Gut & Blixa Bargeld, Bettina Köster, Beate Bartel:
Photo`s Thomas Ruff, 2010.
Autumn nineteen hundred and seventy-nine, eighteen he is, twenty-one me, he poems, I poems, he makes noise music, fake-punk-jazz me, a blind window has our chamber in New York’s Lower East Side. He played with a synthesizer, borrowed from Michael Holman, a saxophone, not borrowed, I. We played with words and ideas and read to each other. He writes SAMO© ESTA EN ALGO in my suitcase, as a farewell, so that he would always be with me. There will not be a reunion, as promised to each other. Spanish by a young New Yorker. Being from Düsseldorf I doesn’t know Spanish. Thirty-two years later I see a picture painted by him long after we parted. The title of the picture SAMO© ESTA EN ALGO, Jean-Michel Basquiat. Years later I found out that SAMO© ESTA EN ALGO is an enigma. And also the reason why he smudged the two-line MAN MADE with his saliva. 2011 the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reported about our past in 1979, when he was not yet the painter.
by recognising the sense of the misspelling SAMO© left in my diary in 1979 as a key. Basquiat quotes „Gods, Graves and Scholars“, C. W. Ceram, who quotes Arthur Schopenhauer in his chapter on Schliemann, the discoverer of Troya, who was not spared scorn by experts: „Dilettantes, Dilletantes!“ – that is how those who pursue a science or art, out of love for it and pleasure in it, per il loro diletto, are called with contempt by those who have taken to it for the sake of profit; because they only delectate the money that can be earned with it. This contempt is based on their base conviction that no one will seriously attack a thing unless necessity, hunger, or some other greed spurs him on to it.“ Michael? My big brother.
