4. The Developement of Art (Selected Stations):
You have been able to see three of our LP artworks at an exhibition KUNST IM QUADRAT by Museum Huelsmann, Bielefeld, from 9th Feb. 2007 to 30th September 2007. Together with the museum we presented an official artwork LP for this exhibition, Edition Museum Huelsmann (EMH-Hase1), in collaboration with (SHMF) and youdonthavetocallitmusic (SHMF-100EMH/youdo-1MH), only offered at the museum store during the exhibition. The LP appeared with painted labels and a collage cover, each one unique, the edition is limited to 66 copies. All artworks are shown on this site under file Edition Huelsmann. This exhibition was also part of the Lange Museumsnacht Bielefeld in April 2007.
From 4th May 2007 to 14st June 2007 our first solo exhibition KOMMISSAR HJULER AND MAMA BAER AT SCOTTLAND took place at Gallery Heart Fine Art Ltd., 6 Waterloo Place, Edinburgh EH1 3EF, Scottland. The gallery showed seven large paintings by Mama Baer, ten paintings from BROTKATZE-Zyklus, and several objects from LA FLEUR, BLOEMENMBEET and PUPPE series by Kommissar Hjuler, combined with a set of Anti-Live-Concerts. Moreover, the Heart Fine Art Ltd. label Show and Tell Editions presents a special edition of our (SHMF-100)-LP, limited to 35 copies, only available at the gallery.
8th and 9th June 2007 we performed the painting action no. 1: TOTENHEMD
FUER SCHROTTFAHRZEUG, our drummer's car was ripe for the scrap heap,
so he allowed us to paint his car. It took two days to grind off the
car lacquer, to fix a white grounding coat, then paint the car with
abstract figueres by Mama Baer and text fragments by Kommissar Hjuler,
get the car scrapped afterwards. We were totally drunk the two days,
and lots of people came to see us work, mostly were upset about
this provocative painting action.
9th June 2007 a private party developed into a concert by Kommissar Hjuler
Allstar Band. We played a version of Frankie Teardrop and then
had to leave the party, noone wanted us to stay there any longer. The
CD-R WANDERUP INDOOR RIOT shall give you an impression of the party
and our concert.
Since 3rd July 2007 our new LP commissaris hjuler en mama beer --- mensen die kort staan voor de zelfdoding (ultar eczema 44) containing the tracks frankie traan/in de bronx/heidie (edition of 300 copies) is available from ultra eczema by Dennis Tyfus, Italielei 63, 2000 Antwerp, Belgium. This is our fourth regular vinyl release - the first release on a different label from our (SHMF) or the specially founded (SHRMF).
Our second solo exhibition APPLE-GRETCHEN took place
from 15th July to 18th August 2007 at Freies Kunst- und Kulturhaus der KKI
Flensburg, KKI-Laboratorium, 24939 Flensburg, Duburger Straße 14. In
three rooms we presented the installation Apple-Gretchen, several
objects and larger paintings. On 5th August there was a special
performance at the KKI-Laboratorium: ---See Us Work!---. The exhibition
ended with a performance by Kommissar Hjuler Allstar Band on 17th
August, at 10.00 pm, at the KKI's Hakro Massandro Festival.
After the exhibition Apple-Gretchen we created a special exhibition room of glass in front of our Asylum Lunaticum, where we show Kommissar Hjuler's Apple-Gretchen since 20th August 2007.
From the beginning of September 2007 up to March 2008 the Galerie ART STORE St.Pauli, Wohlwillstrasse 10, D-20359 Hamburg, has presented some of our items for set-sale at their gallery, a solo exhibition by us is planned for second half of 2008.
29th and 30th September we have been visited by Arnulf Meifert of the
1. Deutsches Trivaleum, we made some recordings that days, but with
hindsight we could only say that we are not able to make recordings
together with other people, our expectations on music are too
explicit, too fixed, we guess.
On 30th November we made another anti-live-concert at the mikro_makro Festival, Alternative Theatre, Slupsk/PL, this concert was part of a twintown art-project between Flensburg and Slupsk, so the vice president was a guest of our concert, but we are not sure, if he really enjoyed it. Hopefully some concerts at Poland will follow.
On 15th and 17th December 2007 we performed two anti-live-concerts at
Khar-yalla, Dakar Liberte, Republique Senegal/Africa, with a special
performance organized by Yassar Kaba, on 1st March and on 4th March
2008 we performed some more anti-live-concerts with different location
at th Republique de Guinee/Africa.
In March 2008 Kommissar Hjuler joined the US-Organization Artists In Cellophane (A. I. C.) and therefor is part of their Art-o-mat set-sale project, for which a special release of Brotkatze is presented, the clear BROTKATZE (SHMF - A.I.C.) in edition of 52 copies, some more artworks for their Art-o-mats shall follow.
In April 2008 we made a performance-tour with four live-concerts. On 17th April we we played at ZAKK Bremen, Sielpfad 11, together with Foeten mit Floeten. There also was a group improvisation planned by us, but Foeten mit Floeten were too drunk, so we canceled this idea and only gave two seperate performances. On 18th April we played at Extrapool, Tweede Walstraat 5, NL-6511 LN Nijmegen, which was the first concert after their renovation. We found a room still not painted and were allowed to style the room for the concert. So we styled it in the vein of Kommissar Hjuler's work Psychatrie. The next day Mama Baer und Frau played toegether with Madame P, Danielle Lemaire, Orphan Fairytale, Leonie Ruissen, and Heidi Mortensen at the Ladyland-Concert, De Overslag, Eindhoven/NL, and on 20th April we followed an invitation by Knut Kargel for the Kunstraum B of Sylvia ellis Kruck, Am Mittelhafen 58, 48155 Muenster, same location of the Meine Fresse Club/Muenster.
The third solo exhibition took place from 19th April to 4th May 2008 at gallery O Tannenbaum, Pfluegerstr. 79a, Berlin, mostly painting from Brotkatze-Votzekatze-War were shown at the gallery, but also some other works by me and some paintings by Mama Baer. The exhibition was supported by Kunstverein Berlin-Neukoelln. There was a video show compiled by us as opening act for the exhibition on 19th April. For the finissage the O Tannenbaum made a dinner first, followed by performances of Seiji Morimoto, Rinus van Alebeek, and Helena Gough.
On 26th April 2008 the Museum Huelmann made a special on our work (paintings/objects/music/books/films) for the Lange Museumsnacht Bielefeld/NachtAnsichten, also an Anti-Live-Concert was shown that night and there was a Kommissar-Hjuler-Quiz that evening.From 30th April to 4th May 2008 we both have been part the group exhibition GALERIE VERTICALE at the Kunstsilo Saarbruecken, An der Roemerbruecke 3, 66121 Saarbruecken, together with Hyeyoung Yun, Sunmi Han, Ulricke Hartmann-Schaefer/Thomas Schaefer, Sonja Koch, Gila Paris, Volker Schuetz, Nenno, Anita Frings, Julia Hunsicker, and Isthar Smedderling.
After the 4th May the Cafe Silo Saarbruecken continued the exhibition of our paintings up to the 28th of August 2008 as a solo exhibition, also for set sale.
The Geelong Arts Alliance Space at Geelong/Australia on 31th May 2008 organized a performance night with Anti-Live-Concert, short film presentation and the installation lighbox by David Dellafiora and Kommissar Hjuler, especially created for this event.
From 4th to 6th July 2008 we will appear live as the opening act for the Avantgarde Festival Schiphorst, at this festival also play Nurse With Wound, Inacu Dumitrescu, Faust, Chris Cutler, KK Null and several more. Please see their website for detailed information!
to 21st July 2008 we exhibited at 2. Flensburger Kunstkilometer, a
set sale exhibition all over the city of Flensburg, we showed
some older paintings and objects at a music store in Neptunhof,

5. Anmerkungen zu einzelnen Werken / Comments on Selected Works:
MUTTERS NEUE EIERSTOECKE: On 24th of July 2008 my 81-year-old mother Ellen Hjuler's overy with a tumor (diameter of 10 inches) was taken out of her abdomen at the Hospital of University Kiel. I asked the professor for my mother's overy and the tumor to built a sculpture of these organs, but I was not allowed to trade the cancerous viscera for my self-built overy. My mother still lives without her overy, her new overy is hanging at the wall of her living rooms. The work shows a play on the German term Eierstoecke (eggsticks) for overy, which consist of the terms eggs and sticks, so for mother's new overy I simply took eggs and wooden sticks, glued inside a wooden frame, and behind glass, such simple arrangement would not suffer from cancer.
SONGZHUANG: When modern art from China became popular for Western collectors, several painters from first generation settled down at a town called SongZhuang, but soon some artists not as popular settled down at this town and became more popular simply for living there. Nowadays also non-chinese painters try to settle down there. The assemblage for Brotkatze shows the 17 painters of the first painters generation building the inner circle of the city, inside a wooden frame. Outside are some free parcels for any rich new painters to settle down and become wellknown soon. And on the right side are some parcels from non-chinese painters, different colours for the parcels, Brotkatze of black dough. In Brotkatze's univers nuts symbolize fame, honor, wealth and power, here the nuts are in the parcels, moreover, lots of nuts become washed ashore, as if this were an island of fame, and for Western collectors of art it is an island of fame.
BLEISTIFTREGEN/PENCILRAIN: In Brotkatze's world shavings of pencil fall down as rain, for Brotkatze at their point of development there must be a god sharpening pencils in heaven, somewhen in the future Brotkatze will know for sure that shavings from pencils get heated by sun, they evaporate, cool down in the hemisphere and fall down as rain again, but few Brotkatze will still believe in a god sharpening pencils.
First of all the work is a play with the German term for book store,
and the shelf with books looks like a tiny book store, if one has
the term book store in mind. The German term consists of the two terms
BUCH (book) and HANDLUNG (plot), so I decided to present a novel-like
plot in several of my books. Each book presents a self-contained part
of the complete plot, a short text alike "She stands with her eyes
shut at the window" or "Another day of her life has started with a
sunny afternoon" or "Her husband is not at home" and in the sequel
of all text parts from the book we have the complete plot of my
Her painting SERIAL JESUS shows him breaking with all conventions and must be regarded as part of the set DIE KIRCHE.
Mama Baer began with the set of paintings, when we were told by Heiko Hasenbein, one of our biggest private collectors, that he had plans for an exhibition of some of our paintings he owns at Evangelische Markusgemeinde Bielefeld, and that the pastor allready has given his assent to the exhibition for early 2009. We wanted to contribute more works dealing with the church, and this is, what Mama Baer had in mind. The chairmen of the parish canceled the project after having seen our website, They decided, that artists like us should not be allowed to exhibit at a church, a decision we both could not understand, I guess they made the fault not to differ between us as artists and us as human beings, as artists we might appear provokative and sometimes perverted, but in the real life we are a normal and even more narrow-minded family. They should have kept in mind, that Kommissar Hjuler works as a police officer, not as a perverted mass murderer, their art is a reflection on several influences of society, so the society might be sick, not the artists reflecting.
Anyway, we now asked several more parishes, if they are interested into our exhibition, and if you have any ideas for a location, Please contact us!
DIERBAAR BESTIARIUM: When I talked with Grace de la Luna of iLLUSEUM about the theme of their summer festival Diebaar bestiarium, I totally misunderstood the theme, I expected it to be a critic on human behaviour not simply a catalogue of all life forms. And so I explained it wrong to Mama Baer. She at that time just found an old article from the 60ies about a dangerous Slovakian plant, that dangerous, that the extract could kill all mankind. And that is, what her paintings of this series deal with, an epidemic break-out, possibly a weappon, possibly the revenge of the nature. Infected people get stored into camps, a doctor makes his experiments with infected people. (Kommissar Hjuler)
KORALLENRIFF: A coral reef is built by accumulations
during a long period of time, so the appearance of each coral reef
depends on the influences by nature. My coral reefs and also those ones I
created together with Mama Baer are very personal coral reefs, for each
one stands for a real person that could have been built up as a
character by any influences, especially during the adolescence. During
my own phase of puberty I got in contact with erotic magazines I found
by chance, so I refer to these phase by including original magazines
into the assemblages. And to get each coral reef in personal correlation
to my own person I also enclose used condoms, so each coral reef is
containing my genetic code and therefore is part of me.
6. Mail Art Projects/Artists Collaborations:
We made several contributions to mail art projects by other artists, some of these works have become shown at exhibitions like Brandstifter's 3. KunstZwergFestival, the Contemporary Art (BUT) exhibitions at Itami City Gallery, or Christian Mildbrandt's Schoko Casana Rosso, possibly an exhibition at Staedtische Bibliothek Neukoelln in 2010, and some works are presented online at Luboyr Tymkiv's M-A-Group, Roland Halbritter's Andreas-Hofer-mailART project, Maurizo Follin's mail-art show, or Christine Tarantino's Words of Light, and Keith A. Buchholz, who runs a blog and makes exhibitions from time to time at Fluxus St. Louis/Artfarm, 4615 Oregon Av., St. Louis/USA.
And some collectors can be visited by the audience, they show the work in a permanent exhibition at their home place, for instance Vittore Baroni, Via C. Battisti 339, Italia - 55049 Viareggio, who's collection contains several mail art objects by us.
We contributed some work to the mail-art-project Unity In Diversity, and our contributions shall become shown in a permanently exhibition at 1st Junior High School, Greece - 40200 Elassona, after the 15th March 2011, http://unity-in-diversity-mailart.blogspot.com/ . The project is innitiated by teachers from the high school and runs under the artistic auspices of the Greek artists Thomai Kontou, Ioanna Papachristou, Thomas Galatos, Vasiliki Tzanou, Despina Pagoni, Timos Papachristos, Ioulia Spanou, Kostas Minas.
Roland Halbritter presented a set of fluxus stamps with the artwork we contributed to his Andreas-Hofer-mailArt project. Also the M-A-Group presented a little catalogue about their mail-art project.
In 2007, 2008, 2010 we were invited to contributed works for the fluxus mail art book FIELD REPORT, Field Study, P.O. Box 1838 Geelong, VIC 3220 Australia (Fluxus-Jahrbuch), in 2008 we also contributed works for the RESITE, Field Study, P.O. Box 1838 Geelong, VIC 3220 Australia (Fluxus-Kunstbuch). And in 2010 and 2011 we contributed again.
For music performances we have been collaborating live on stage with Foltergaul (D), John Wiese (USA), Eugene Chadbourne (USA), Jan van den Dobbelsteen and Danielle Lemaire (NL) as project JaDaMaBaPa, also have been performing together with the band Caracho (D), and with Knut Kargel (D), Peter Kastner (D), Wolf D. Schreiber/San Siro (D), Harappian Night Recordings (UK), Ludo Mich (B), The Hunter Grachus (UK), Closedunruh (D), Clive Graham of Morphogenesis (UK), ZEBU! (USA), Ninni Morgia & Silvia Kastel (I), Dead Labour Process (UK), Barbara Rapp (A), and Kakawaka (D).
Moreover some mail collaborations for music are existing, a special project is the (SHMF-019+...), see no. 10 of this list!
Moreover, we will be more open for collaborations with other artists in 2010, you will find a special file for these works!
The photographer Josef Karl from Gruenwald/Munich asked us to work with some of his fotos and some given objects of his and his wife Natalie's dead son Christopher. See point of this list for detailed information!
Moreover, he gave to me some of his female ID photographies and some polaroids he has collected for a year to create my very own sculptures and assemblages with. One result are my fem.ID-Puppen, of which I created one for each model in Josef Karl's latest book.
Eine fem.ID-Naschbox ist ein Schuettelbild, in dem ein Fotoset und eine abstrahierte Figur samt Naschbeilagen farblich arrangiert sind.
So einfach sollte man es sich nicht machen, denn die Bilder von Josef Karl signalisierten für mich gleich bei erster Sichtung eine jeweils eigene und explizit suggerierte Identitaet der Fotografierten, jeweils mit latenter Erotik. Sie wirkten für mich zum Anbeissen, so dass ich hierzu sofort den Bezug zur Suessigkeit herstellte und weiter mit einer figuerlichen Darstellung immer eine weitere Darstellerinnen hinzufuegen wollte, um so ein personelles Verbindungsglied zwischen Fotografie und Rahmung herzustellen.
Die Bilder signalisieren so eine Einheit, auch wenn der Inhalt, also die Suessigkeit beweglich ist und variiert werden kann, veraendert dieses nicht das jeweilige Zusammenspiel. So entstanden hier 20 kleine Identitaeten, die als Schüettelbild zudem einem Kaeufer die Moeglichkeit offerieren, am endgültigen Ausdruck mitzuwirken, so dass er nicht nur die ihm am ehesten zusagende Identitaet erwerben kann, sondern durch Zurechtschüetteln der Suessigkeiten Einfluss auf das letztendliche Aussehen des Assemblage hat und so Teil an der Identitaet nimmt. (Interview Kommissar Hjuler)
And in February 2011 Kommissar Hjuler started the fluxporn collaboration project for which he works with actresses and photographers from pornographic scene, see point 9 of this list!
Mama Baer worked together with Klaus Girnus from Xanten at a series of
paintings that were sold together with our Split-LP at
Hjuler worked together with Norbert Futscherndorf (A), and just works
with Raphael Avenant (F) and Oxana Mahnac (D).
We just both collaborated with Barbara Rapp (A) and then had the idea for a kind of art gang banging, to chose some artists that work together on several objects and paintings in small groups or possibly all together, as there are Barbara Rapp (A), Maks Dannecker (D), Markus Bittermann (A), C.mank & Francis Tucker (D), and us. An exhibition is planned for 2012 at Galerie Offenes Atelier D. U. Design, Dorothee Unkel, Postgasse 6, Villach/A.
In February 2011 Kommissar Hjuler started a collaboration by mail with Phillip Graffham (Ponoma/California/USA).
In May 2011 Kommissar Hjuler collaborated with NO!art leader Clayton Patterson for some assemblages, Clayton also signs responsible for cover art of a special edition of (SHMF - 222)-release: the NO!photo-Edition.
Kommissar Hjuler also just worked by mail with albrecht/d. (Stuttgart/D), Heinz Lotz (Darmstadt/D), Vladimir Vacovsky (Czech Republic), Martin Behr (Graz/A), Lee Young-sik (Berlin/D), and Jaya Suberg (Berlin/D).
Mama Baer now works on a contribution of portraits to the installation -- bee-hive -- by Daniela Floersheim, which shall be shown at different venues in 2013/14, starting the series of exhibtions at Frauenmuseum Bonn, and Kommissar Hjuler works in collaboration with Daniela as well.
We started a file ZUSAMMENARBEITEN on our website to show all the results of collaborations existing outsiude the fixed projects Brotkatze Collaborations and fluxporn.
7. Brotkatze - Collaborations by Kommissar Hjuler:
First of all: For their support of the project I have to name Babara Rapp, Maks Dannecker, Martina Jaeger, Matthias Horn, and Ruediger Abshalom Dalit Westphal/RADW by part as conceptual co-directors!
The first Brotkatze figures I created 2001, I guess, then went on creating several series of collectable figures in my (SHMF). Since 2004 or 2005 I worked out assemblages that focus on fictive aspects of Brotkatzes culture, society and religion, and at least they were in war with Votzekatze, an emperior from a different galaxy, developed any further as Brotkatze. So Brotkatze to me became an alter ego of mankind, letting me reflect on any curious behaviour of people in the assemblages, as the descriptions of my works SONGZHUANG and BLEISTIFTREGEN/PENCILRAIN show, see point 5 of this list.
Brotkatze became part of our music, the recordings BROTKATZE FUR PAUL MCCARTHY and EXBROTKATZENDED were distributed as hand-cut vinyl in assemblage cover and as CD-R on our (SHMF) and lateron have become reissued at the LP by youdonthavetocallitmusic/Museum Huelsmann and the 7inch BROKATZE by cult pump (DK). This 7inch also excists with handmade artists edition of 11 copies, each cover art an unique assemblage. EXBROTKATZENDED became re-issued on tape at Heart Fine Art Ltd. (Scotland). And this tape also excists as limited fluxbox BROTKATZE in edition of 24 copies, containing the tape, an original Brotkatze-ink-monk assemblage and blue-coloured rice inside a box.The tracks we performed live at several art events, for instance together with JaDaMaBaPa in the Netherland.
I created some collectable series of small Brotkatze figures in handmade boxes for my (SHMF), also made special editions of tracks with assemblage covers by Brotkatze like for De hellige tre konger. In 2008 one series of 52 figures was sold by Art-O-Mat (USA).
Some Brotkatze works have been part of our exhibitions, an exhibition of only Brotkatze-Assemblages took place at Galerie O Tannenbaum, Berlin, April 2008.
End of 2009 I gave some Brotkatze figures to Eric Lunde (USA) for a little installation in glass frame, of which three fotos exist. Another collaborative work by musician Thomas Wolff (D) and me has become created, for which I enclosed an object by him in an assemblage of Brotkatze.
Since early spring of 2010 I invite artists to work with some Brotkatze figures and Votzekatze collages.
So in collaboration with Kommissar Hjuler works exists with the following NO!art members :
Moreover, works in collaboration with Kommissar Hjuler by ...

The idea is that all artists work with figures given to them by me in their very own creative way, no directions, same principle as for (SHMF-019+...)-project.
The first exhibition of these collaborations took place at Galerie Atelier Kargel, Welver.
Since this time we run the project together with Barbara Rapp and Maks Dannecker, who are really engaged in the project and do a lot of the promotional work.

7. 1. Niederungen und Eroberungen - Kommissar Hjulers BROTKATZE-Kollaborationen:
Ein Projekt von Kommissar Hjuler & Mama Baer in Kollaboration mit verschiedenen Kuenstlern
Konzeptuelle Mitarbeit: Maks Dannecker und Barbara Rapp
Initial: Eine simple Brotteigflocke, mitten aus frischen Broetchen gerissen, gesammelt, geknetet und getrocknet – dieser haptisch ausgesprochen reizvolle Vorgang begruendete die Geschichte der BROTKATZE von Kommissar Hjuler & Mama Baer. Protagonisten dieses Kunstprojektes sind die sowohl in ihren visuellen als auch charakterlichen Eigenschaften voellig unterschiedlich konzipierten
Figurengebilde Brotkatze und Votzekatze. Analog zum trivialen Produktionsprozess der Figur Brotkatze ist diese als alter ego auf die Menschheit eines frueheren Entwicklungsstadiums entworfen. In ihrer archaischen und eher technikorientierten Naivitaet entwickelte sie sich aus der von einer Herrschaftsfamilie regierten Welt mit eigenen physikalisch-religioesen Gesetzmaessigkeiten heraus, seien dies beispielsweise das Prinzip der Be- anstatt der Erleuchtung oder eine mechanisch herzustellende Suendenfreisprechung anstatt katholischer Bussgelder.
Intellektuell der Brotkatze weit ueberlegen ist die Figur der Votzekatze, eine schmenenhaft katzenartige Collage aus Ausschnitten von Fotografien einer Scheide. Als ueberlegene Eroberin, die im Rahmen der eintretenden industriellen Revolution die Macht an sich reissen will und zu diesem Zwecke auch gewaltorientierte Handlungen ohne Skrupel einkalkuliert, stellt Votzekatze das bisher durchaus friedvolle soziale Gefüge auf den Kopf und löst einen Krieg der Welten aus.
Basis: In Kommissar Hjulers Kollaborationsprojekt BROTKATZE stellen diese beiden gegensaetzlichen Figuren das Bindeglied einer kulturellen Kuenstlerzusammenführung dar. Unter Beruecksichtigung der visuellen und konzeptionellen Basis der Spezies Brotkatze und Votzekatze verarbeiten unterschiedliche Kuenstler diese in ihrer jeweiligen Arbeitstechnik zu unabhaengig voneinander geschaffenen Werkserien mit direktem Bezug auf das heutige Gesellschaftskonstrukt.
Inhalte: So setzt beispielsweise Kommissar Hjuler in seinen BROTKATZE-Arbeiten vielfach Situationen aus globalen gesellschaftspolitischen Entwicklungen um - auch wenn er bei der Schaffung der Basisfiguren auf ambivalente Art und Weise den direkten Bezug zum Menschen
vermied, um vordergründigen Assoziationen vorzubeugen. Mama Baer greift gerade diese Ambivalenz auf und bringt in ihren Malereien
bewusst die Menschlichkeit in ihrer koerperlichen und geistigen Vielschichtigkeit ins Spiel. In Maks Danneckers Fotoarbeiten und Objekten werden Brotkatze und Votzekatze in zeitgemaesse, oft auch utopische Zusammenhaenge gesetzt und Barbara Rapp laesst ihre Protagonisten
aktuelle soziokulturelle Entwicklungen durchleben. Industrialisierung, Kapitalismus und die Sensibilitaet gesellschaftlicher Systeme werden von den weiteren teilnehmenden Künstlern ebenso behandelt, wie das Aufeinandertreffen unterschiedlicher (Nicht)meinungen oder die allzeit gültige Suche nach dem Sinn des Lebens an sich.
Resuemee: Aus teils voellig unterschiedlichen Assoziationen zur und Reaktionen auf die BROTKATZE werden von jedem Projektteilnehmer individuell relevante Thematiken aufgegriffen und unter Einbeziehung der Basisfiguren kuenstlerisch aufgearbeitet. So bietet die Zusammenstellung der gezeigten Arbeiten aus den Bereichen Malerei, Fotografie, Assemblage und Objekt dem Betrachter
schlussendlich einen durchaus weitraeumigen Querschnitt aktueller gesellschaftlicher, soziokultureller und politischer Aspekte des

8. Christopher Karl ist tot:
September 2008 Natalie and Josef Karl have not been able to find a
place at a day-nursery by their local community of Munich to give away
their 14-month-old son Christopher during the daytime, so both decided
to give their son to the private nursemaid Alexandra S., mother of two
daughters, to look after their son, while they both were at work.
So Mama Baer and Kommissar Hjuler focussed on several aspects of this interesting case.
The work you will find at file ZUSAMMENARBEITEN, and some work on the theme by Mama Baer is at file MALEREI, but Josef Karl did not want her to continue creating works, after she started her first paintings.
At our file LINKS you will be led to an article by Sueddeutsche Zeitung - Magazin - Christopher Karl ist tot (at letter K).
Die verschiedenen bereits entstandenen und noch in der Entstehung befindlichen Kurbeln repraesentieren ein Jedermanns-Prinzip, das doppelte Austauschbarkeit darstellt, zum einen kann jedes Kind in die Rolle des Gedrehten kommen, zum anderen sind die Bediener der Kurbel austauschbar.
In einer Ausstellung wird man diese Kunst zum Anfassen eher spielerisch ein wenig drehen, die deutlich abstrahierte Aussage wird hier dem Betrachter aber zum Teil durch aufgeklebte Texte nahe gebracht, er soll realisieren, dass es kein Spiel ist, sondern Realitaet.
Natalie und Josef Karl waren gezwungen, ihren Sohn in eine solche Kurbel zu legen, in der Annahme, dass die Kommune genau kontrolliert, wer die Kurbel bedient. Dass hier aber jemandem, bei dem Beschwerden vorlagen, weiter erlaubt wurde, Kinder zu kurbeln, das zeigte auf, dass die Austauschbarkeit im wahren Leben allgegenwaertig ist. So ist eine Jedermannskurbel eine Kritik daran, dass tatsaechlich jedermann einfach nach Lust und Laune die Kurbel betaetigen kann und so das jeweilige Kind durchschuëttelt. Die Austauschbarkeit des Kindes soll aufzeigen, dass jedermann auch gefordert ist, den Umstand der Austauschbarkeit am Kurbelarm wirksam zu regulieren. Hier haben diese Kontroll-Mechanismen versagt, im Vordergrund stand die Kurbelnde, deren Berufseingliederung und Sozialisation der Vorrang gegenuëber der Gefahr einer unkontrollierten Kurbelung eingeraeumt wurde. Nur wer erfaehrt davon?
Ein versteckter Aspekt ist dabei auch die Jedermann-Frage fuër das Kurbeln an sich, das also den Kontrollverlust infolge Ueberforderung darstellt.
Wenn hierbei dreist zum Kurbeln bei Ueberforderung aufgefordert wird, dann spiegelt dieses wieder, dass unsere gesamte Gesellschaft diesen Leistungsdruck schuert, dem Leute oftmals nicht standhalten koennen.
Die Kurbel ist so bewusst abstrahierte Kritik, dass sie viele Ansaetze zum Nachdenken liefert, und das macht Gesellschaftspolitik doch aus.
Der fehlende Abschied ist ebenfalls Thematik einiger Assemblagen, so in Herbstzeitlose, ein Titel der an die Deutsche Lyrik zum Ende des 19. bzw. Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts erinnert, der Herbst als sich metaphorisch ankuëndigendes Lebensende, die Zeit des Abschieds, nur hatten die Eltern diese Zeit nicht, der Herbst kam vor dem Fruëhling. (Interview Kommissar Hjuler)
works on the theme of Josef's lost son have taken a lot of time and a
lot of my haert's blood has been flown directly into these works I
had the idea for several exhibitions containing these works by me, and
I will be proud, whenever my work is shown as a lttle part of his very own project.
Critics and a lot of artists state, that art and pornography do not belong together, some state, that good art shall exclude pornography.
My work is often simply rated as pornography. Well, for my art I use themes, that I find in the world we live in. I am supposed that my work is not pornography, it deals with the term sexuality, as we find it in society. To me art shall be a mirror of society!Being confronted once again with a statement, that I simply do pornography, I asked myself, why this dissociative point of view is that deep based in an art critic's mind. Artists so far only focussed on pornographic scene from oustide, sometimes entered this scene for short time to get impressions of it as an object for their work. But they always held their distance.
I then had the idea to quit with this dissociative point of view. For fluxporn I now invite porn actresses and actors, photographers and film makers of the pornographic industry, any persons working in the erotic scene like escort services, table dancers, playmates from magazines, prostitutes, ... to work together with me in order to create real collaborative and authentic works dealing with the term sexuality.
My main interest for fluxporn is to work with them as subjects!
They shall not simply be object of any art: In fluxporn a porn actress can become part of the creative process of a work.
And for sure she or he is the one, who decides, how pornographic the collaboration will look like lateron. If a model collaborates with me, the result of our collaboration will be different from her normal work, her contribution can be the basis for a possibly even non-pornographic result! fluxporn is by far not to create any pornographic art! fluxporn brings together artists from so far separated scenes and describes the process of working together in order to get a most authentic results!
On January 2nd, 2012 the first collaborative work in fluxporn was finished with the wonderful porn actress Lena Nitro from Duesseldorf, winner of Erotixxx Award 2010 as Rising Star, Venus Award for Best Outstanding Progress in Germany 2011, and Venus Award for Best Actress in Germany 2012.
Kommissar Hjuler just collaborated with porn actress Violet Storm from Pastow, Cornwall UK, winner of Brussels Erotic Award 2002, editor of Penthouse UK, who run her own television series on Television X in 2002 and the documentary EASY MONEY on BBC 2 in 2003.And Kommissar Hjuler worked together with Annika Rose, who was working as porn actress Annika Bond exclusively for Eronite Media Ltd. Potsdam and who together with Maria Mia run the reality show Das Lesbencasting for Eronite Media Ltd. as moderator. Today she only works as Annika Rose.
In February 2012 I worked with Samira Summer, director of the Dirty Showgirls Company - Samira Summer, Postfach 91074, 51077 Koeln, a group of twenty-three professional show girls and table dancers one can rent for special events. After the first works with Samira, her Dirty Showgirls Company has become the role of a partner company for the fluxporn project, so the next collaborative work was with her team leaders Elly Darnell, Josy Fine, Medea Fox, Kiara Kane, and with the dancer Taya Lamai.
And with TexasPatti, a webcam girl and porn actress from MyDirtHobby, Kommissar Hjuler just created several madonna-assemblages containing worn panties by TexasPatti.
April and May 2012 Kommissar Hjuler worked together with porn actress Leonie Lingua from Graz/Austria.
September 1st and 2nd, 2012, at Schloss Liedberg, 41352 Korschenbroich, nine collaborative works with porn actress TexasPatti & Kommissar Hjuler from fluxporn project and some other workby Kommissar Hjuler shall be as part of the exhibition selected by Carlotte Kons, galerie amtsschatzhaus Neuss.
work with models/actresses directly always showed a problem concerning
the rights of the photos and of the stage name, so I now work with star
photographer Marco Pallotti from Santa Monica, who worked with nearly
all actresses of ATMLA agency Los Angeles and is owner of the rights of the photographies he provides for collaborative works.
Beginning of 2013 Kommissar Hjuler worked together with BDSM-/fetish actress Kitty Blair from Meerbusch, who does several video productions and worked for Chateau Noir, Charlottenstrasse 66, Duisburg.
10. (SHMF-019+…) - Collaboration Project:
The Generalized Other refers to George Herbert Mead's psychological explanation for the origin of social self-consciousness. Within Mead's theory, is the act of 'role-taking' in which individuals react to social gestures, and adjust to common attitudes. Through 'role-taking', people adapt to social exchanges based on gesture-response action sequences. Self-consciousness is then developed through these social actions and completed upon personal reflection. This text is hard to handle for other artists, we now have given away quite a lot of free Audio-CD-Rs to other artists, but only few were able to work with our spoken text. It is a stumbling dialogue with reading parts and conversation parts and in the result we do by far not justice to the grandilocant or intellectual theme.
Mainly artists and musicians from experimental music scene have contributed, but not at least, this project is to create a mix of most different music styles, one of the stranges contributions was by the Afro-French Urban-Rap- and Dub-musician LO daam, who normally creates music far from any experimental scene, and the crazy version by the dark metal band HELLMOUTH from Rotterdam.
Artists and musicians, who are interested into creating their personal version for this project, could get a promotional Audio-CD-R with the spoken text, the versions sent back become released on our label, the artists will get some free copies. Especially artists from very different music scenes are invited for their contribution, also film works or collages and paintings as limited prints are possible, it need not be the medium music, anything goes.
Several more collaboration works like the mail-collaboration between Rudolf Eb.er of Schimpfluch Group (SHMF - Eb.er), LP in limited edition, re-issued as a CD by Blossoming Noise/USA in edition of 1000 copies, or the experimental smalltalk with Juergen O. Olbrich of NO-Institue/Paper Police (SHMF - 155), CD-R in limited edition, which is also a set for other anti-live acts, are possible.
So anyone is invited to become part of the (SHMF)!

Minute of Listening is a project that encourages primary school teachers and their pupils to dedicate a minute each day to a new listening experience as a class, using a custom-built piece of software that brings a minute-long recording to their classroom every morning. After listening, the children are encouraged to talk about what they heard and may undertake a range of extension activities based on the recording. You can find out more about the projecthere www.soundandmusic.org/projects/minute-listening
The recordings used in the project cover an extremely wide range of music and sound – from field recordings to orchestral pieces -and everything inbetween.
A second phase pilot for the project has been taking place from January 4th to March 30th, 2012 in 80 primary schools around the UK, in the areas of Cornwall and Oxfordshire and the London Boroughs of Enfield, Lambeth and Westminster. In total almost 20 000 children listened to the recordings used each day.The tracks HJCVGrimmelshausen by Kommissar Hjuler and Asylum Lunaticum by Mama Baer have been used during this educational project.
