Poems and drawings: Alexander Peer’s poems examine critically the state of the world. In the five chapters of the book, cultural history is moored to the human body: head, heart, belly, genitals and hand. Peer’s poems and Moussa Kone’s ink drawings complement each other; the fragmented body becomes a projection surface for depicting society.

"Moussa Kone’s magnificent ink drawings, which accompany the poems thematically, make the slim volume an ideal companion for days when it is a pleasure to fail cheerfully at life." (Falter 12/18, p.30)
