Klimt's critic view on his assignment to picture the four faculties of  Viennas University and its rejection and the public indignation asks us if art and inspiriation is going with the time or if art is the forger of doom. 

Crimson Gaze

Schoenbergs "Gaze", earlier "Crimson Gaze" shows us just a face in the moment, where fear turns to hate and bare brutality. Then scapegoat is what will be found. But will you cravenly be silent in this crimson gaze?


Death and the Maiden

The young Egons Schiele, while he was in service in the first world war, used this old tale, like Schubert and other artist did. From his view the Death comes as a starved priest and takes the girl in her innocence before war will strike this place and ravage but will she come with him?


Message of the Dead

Franz Kafkas' metaphor partly quoted and concluded to a hounding story about the kings power over his servents, and their blind obidience.

Huxleys book "A Brave New World" from a different perspective. A wild one falls into a strange utopia where feelings and knowledge are gone just not to witness loss.  Revolution or death in entertainment slavery?

A Stars' Eclipse

Quoted from Sachs' "Sternenverdunklung", where she spokes about the oblivion and dispelling of the Shoa, and the sorrow, which each descendant has to bare. it didn't start with the camps, it started with fear and hate.


The Longest Fall

Before man appeared on earth the trees wandered and talked and even two of them fall in love. But then man came and these trees ingrained and where seperated by a growing path that only envy will end their suffer.

A Crow's Word

The medieval sickness walks through the valleys so two brothers were sent to spread alarm in the next village. But the ascent is harder this time and as one of them falls and breaks his leg, a crow sit down before them.

Wall of Blackness pt. II

Saint-Exupéry "the little Prince" as a good conclusion to "The great Beyond". The journey to the desired is long and what hides behind is sometimes elusive, but one can see it clearly.
