Drawing (57) from THE BASIS OF MAKE-UP

"For practicing purposes: the silhouettes of 32 fighter planes on an identification panel for jet pilots. Recognizing the enemy and the reactions drawn as a consequence must take place as quick as lightning and as if in a state of trance, in the sense of traditional predator qualities. Three still-living rabbits connected to tubes in shoeboxes, the lids of which have been closed behind their heads like neck collars, are meanwhile waiting for medical experiments to be conducted on them. A prescribed passivity at the service of human monoculture and its unique selling point. The sad eyes of Bonn: In 1987, a man with drooping warts on his eyelids and wide-open pupils looked into my train compartment from the main station's platform-directly into my as yet healthy eyes. I felt caught unaware, like the laboratory rabbit of an ill humanity, and have since suspiciously observed my eyelids. Who really wants to know, or hear from someone, that he is a violent animal."
