Haus in Schwarz (House in Black)
In the city centre of Möhringen, Germany, used to stand an unusual house that was painted completely black.
It was a 2008 public art piece by artists Erik Sturm und Simon Jung.
The piece was meant as a farewell to the building which was slated for demolition.
The black paint represented a curtain for the house, whose exterior had been used as a canvas by numerous street artists.
After it was demolished, the owner, art gallery manager Karin Abt-Straubinger, built a new gallery on the site.
You know you’re a book clerk when someone writes you from prison asking for recommendations.
Fun things to say when someone tells you they’re going to go to the bathroom:
- Stay safe
- That’s what they all say
- Different strokes for different folks
- I hope you have the time of your life
- But you have so much to live for
- Please explain
- think of me
