Walter  Moers - Sex, Absinthe and False Hares


"A brilliant parody of art, art history and art reception." kunst blog

"Life is serious, cheerful be art" – it is with this programmatic Kafka quote that Walter Moers opens his epoch-making contribution to the history of art. From Stone Age cave painting, through Hieronymus Bosch and Albrecht Dürer, the modernism of artists like Edvard Munch or Pablo Picasso, and on to the heroes of the present such as Edward Hopper – Walter Moers's masterpiece on the very special intellectual humour of the New Frankfurt School shows a very different view of the history of the art of the world – as it really was or could have been, for one person was always there first: the little asshole.
