Launch — Von Oben @ Art Copenhagen

Bad Day Pub­lish­ing and Stock­holm based artist Sany (Samuel Nyholm) invites you to the launch of Von Oben on Septem­ber 17th 2011 at Art Copen­ha­gen

Von Oben (from above) is a an idio­mat­ic expres­sion in Ger­man that mean­ing to have a super­i­or atti­tude to oth­ers. In the book ‘Von Oben’, those offend­ers are instantly and lit­er­ally pun­ished, by heavy objects fall­ing on them from the sky. In a sec­u­lar world, where our great God has gone for vaca­tion, it remains no great­er pun­ish­ment than our own arrog­ance.
The book’s ste­reo­types are taken from an equally racist as sex­ist slap-stick­world, even though no longer aired pub­licly, thriv­ing in our sub­con­scious. Des­pite its coarse­ness, its com­pon­ents dwells in all of us. Per­haps even you, at some point, deserved a Stein­way in the head?”
