Two Hundred Alternative Facts about Mr T

Posted in Publications by JS on February 8, 2017

I just released a new publication that I made in response to recent events. As its title says, the booklet reveals two hundred little known alternative facts. Count them. They are painstakingly researched and they are true. The full truth about Mr T, all you need to know in this time of fake news and demagogy. This is a great brochure. It’s true. It’s one of the best brochures ever. It’s offered at the fantastic price of just € 3 per copy. And things get better: There is a special unlimited quantity discount – just € 25 for a bundle of 10 copies. Get them for your friends. This very special brochure will only be available as long as Mr T is in office. The day he resigns or gets impeached or assassinated or is replaced by another president, the remaining stock will be sent to hell. Until then a free copy of this great brochure will be included in every book order. And that is a fact. Now available in my shop.

Bilderbuch 2.0

Posted in Publications by JS on January 26, 2017


The Bilderbuch project draws on an extensive archive of photographs taken from newspapers, magazines, books etc. that I have been gathering over more than 40 years. A selection from this ongoing collection of printed matter, removed from the original context and presented without any comment, was first published in book form in 2012. Bilderbuch 2.0 is an expanded remix of the book’s first edition. The book is now available in my shop.

Vom Gehen

Posted in Publications by JS on January 12, 2017

Vom Gehen

In late autumn 1974, Werner Herzog walked from Munich to Paris. In the logbook of his journey he mentioned the village I grew up in and that I had left a few months before he passed through it. His three words in Vom Gehen im Eis / Of Walking in Ice are possibly the only literary mention of the village. Forty-two years later I repeated one leg of Werner Herzog’s walk. The little book I made about the walk is now available in my shop.
