Broadsheets (Einblattdrucke) are pages-printed on one side, with which the content, text and picture, is an entirity. The dimensions are 26 x 17 cm; edition of 50 signed by both the artist and author. Since the 15th century they have served as a quick form of spreading information about current events or news. They are the predecessor to the newspaper. Broadsheets were relevant up to the 18th century in all areas of life, whether it be politics, war, law, and also for the extraordinary and sensational news. The first print of the American Declaration of Independence in German was a broadsheet (German History Museum). These culturally important historical broadsheets are treasures and in their rarity have a high collector value.More
An Eastern-European man flees from bizarre Romania and experiences Germany as a Ship of Fools: a country with doctors who need treatment, neighbours one only meets in chat rooms, huge numbers of gifted children, and mothers still wanting to feed their offspring, who have long since joined generation 50+. But in addition to people like you and me there are also Charles Bronson, Frankenstein's monster, Woody Allen and, again and again, Charlie Chaplin, because life is a absurdly mad 3D movie.More
Filuteks Handbuch der Fragen
Everything is all right "at the dreams fair." When you look for the small town of your childhood and resume your life where "you left it lying". Taking a walk through the place awakens memories of the insane Marie, the asthmatic grandmother, the boy who watched the town from atop a tree, of Luisa, who believes she needs to justify her life - a web of stories and perspectives. Then the narrator leaves this calming province and invents an author. The "micro novel" Handbuch der Fragen is his creation, and Filutek his big city hero.More
Eine lange Zeit
For the reader, delving into this extensive collection of poems, stories and aphorisms (which the author often amusedly calls "sayings" or "notes") is akin to a time travel through the last fifty years and more of the life of a Berlin resident - but it also reveals a cosmopolitan side. The book oscillates between universal themes such as love, friends, childhood, age, and art in and of itself. At times the observations are personal and reflecting, generalizing, laconically realistic, melancholically poetic or nihilistically philosophical but always astute. The mental closeness to his progenitors, Charles Baudelaire, Gottfried Benn, and Charles Bukowski, which Michael J. Wewerka admits to, underline the existential width of his work.More
Those, like Nicanor Parra, who write 'Antipoetry' must know even more how poetry is created. To begin with his Achterbahn is worth it – he has nevertheless descended together with all poets from Mount Olympus. But caution - because (anti-) poetry of Parra can cause blindness, confuse police, cause seizures, and consequently even lead to death, but fortunately one can first save the environment and battle baldness.More

Catharine J. Nicely
Gerd-Peter Eigner, novelist, storyteller, essay writer and author of audio books, presents a surprising collection of poems in MAMMUT. This collection unifies fragments and fractures of an eventful life, starting at its place of birth in Malapane, Upper Silesia (now Ozimek, Poland) and continues on in Berlin and the Roman present time. Not just as traveller, but primarily as "resident of different countries and places," he places himself and the world in assertion.More
garden on my cheek
Ever since John Berger first saw Liane Birnberg's artwork in her studio many years ago, they have been connected in a friendship of high productivity for Liane. He says that her artwork has "eyes" and continuously sends her his new books, which function as catapults for her work. Language plays a significant role in Liane Birnberg's images, but it is only recognizable through pure graphics. The words are embedded in micro-glass beads; they become distorted, and other lines and forms engulf everything. The text and the image merge, though neither belongs to the other. garden on my cheek is the third book by John Berger and Liane Birnberg, which includes an essay by Jürgen Wellbrock as its foreword.
The book will be released by PalmArtPress in celebration of John Berger's ninetieth birthday.
Berlin is my Paris
In autobiographical reports and literary miniatures, Carmen-Francesca Banciu immerses herself in the life of the capital city, visits enchanting localities from world history, and tells of her encounters with interesting and unique people. She whisks readers away to her favorite cafes, goes on journeys of discovery through dreamy courtyards, and shows how Paris can be forgotten in this New Berlin. Melancholic, jovial, and idiosyncratic stories of life between two cultures and of a city that is once again starting to exude cosmopolitan flair.More
