The Talisman includes a collection of body stick tattoos of more than 70 international positions contributing with artistic, poetic and literary art works. The form of the book resembles a stamp album and sustains the character of an individual collection which as well operates as a contemporary document.

The edition FUROR was founded in 2012 by Xenia Lesniewski and Julia Rublow in Vienna. The program of FUROR includes the production of experimental editions, progressive book objects, artist books as well as multiples and monographs in small editions.
Working with artist Thomas Bratzke and designer Matthias Hübner is the ultimate dream. I’m so thrilled to see this book actualized (–yet another one we’ve worked together on bringing to completion!–) and to see the reaction of people reading who are from the GDR AND, awesomely, the West. Such interest. When reading the interviews, transitory romanticism is avoided. It’s easy to see how the collective memories expressed weakens the nearly automatic repressions/oppression experienced by youth raised before Germany’s unification. Very cool and huge thanks to everyone who has helped.
It was very fun going to Flasch’s special collection (Flaxman Library) and seeing the excitement of the purchaser to see a book honoring so many impt. topics rarely delved so deeply into due to this kind of paralysis felt from having one’s country ripped from underneath them. Shoutout to them too!

AWARDS & NOMINATIONS
My brilliant Zaida, James Rosen, sent me the accompanying portrait today, on the three month birthdays of my twin, feral kitten boys. The kittens overcame my life and heart oscillating neediness and constant freeness, and in the opposite expression, my grandfather has brought consistent care and careful insight. The many routes and detours end at the same destination.
Love gives hope and joy. A certainty is all that we love will disappear.
Love arrives as quick as love’s inevitable disappearance and absence. Unexpected and unfinished, this yank and release anchors us to move to the future we already know will hurt. But we also know the end is never quite the end.
