Helmut Lemke was born in 1926 in East Prussia. He recounts, often humorously, his life at the boarding school in Marienburg, in the Hitler-youth, the workforce and the military. In the last year of the war he was stationed at the eastern front and was wounded in East Prussia. In a suspenseful way he takes the reader along on his adventurous, dangerous journey from the military hospital in Schwerin back into his home village in East Prussia, where he hoped to find his mother again. He gives an insight into the life conditions and circumstances in his home village, now under Russian occupation, shortly after the end of the war as he observed and experienced them. Expelled from his home by Polish authorities, he lives for a short time as refugee in communist East Germany and flees to West Germany.

sinnlos ist ein einzigartiges Kunstprojekt, das mit den Mitteln der Kunst die Methoden der Be- und Verhinderung im alltaglichen Leben, in der Gesellschaft sowie in der Kunst thematisiert. Es ist kein Behindertenprojekt, sondern versteht sich vielmehr als Postulat fur neu denken und handeln. sinnlos ein work in progress ermoglicht einen ersten Schritt in Richtung einer egalitaren Gesellschaft, die Differenz als Qualitat und nicht als Stigma sieht. Die Kunst ist dabei zu einem der letzten Zufluchtsorte fur gesellschaftspolitische Experimente und Strategien der Veranderung geworden. In Beitragen und Abbildungen beleuchtet die Publikation den weitlaufigen Themenkomplex und dokumentiert bereits realisierte Teilbereiche des Gesamtprojekts.

Fragmented and morbid, yet full of an inspiring, adolescent sensitivity, Douglas Kolk's drawings and collages feature seductive, abject figures who seem to be at odds with themselves and the world around them. Influenced by Pop art and contemporary media images, Kolk's delicate, confessional works have titles like A Boy Named Deth, A Girl Named Sic, and Hi Sunflower! and deal intensively with popular youth culture. Perhaps the artist's personal history lends some insight: born in Newark, NJ, in 1963, Kolk grew up in a senior citizens' home led by his father, a Baptist preacher. After studying graphic design, he worked as an assistant to Robert Longo, and then as the curator of a corporate art collection. In the mid-90s, increasing artistic success brought enough pressure to cause Kolk to stop working for a while. He recently resumed drawing, and has had solo shows at Team and David Zwirner galleries in New York.
