Carl KENZ latest Projects and Stories

“COMPENSATORY JUSTICE / AUSGLEICHENDE GERECHTIGKEIT”, The wall is 6 x 2,50 m and was painted in Kaiserslautern, Germany. The times of compensatory justice have long been numbered. Printed paper is above everything. Money. A man-made god who could hardly be more narcissistic. Ruthless towards everything and everyone, and yet worshiped and adored by most. A distorted reality in which universal knowledge, intellect and logic, is clearly defeated by a few printed notes of paper. His power seems limitless and grows steadily, fed by so-called individuals or those who want to become one. Transformed into wooden puppets hanging on the silk twines of life, the human species can be found again. Directed by power, money, and its puppeteers, who cover themselves high up in dark clouds. Question everything, use your mind, make decisions, follow your heart. “To each their own” (suum cuique tribuere)

“COMFORABLY NUMB / ANGENEHM BETÄUBT” . 6 x 2,50 m . Kaiserslautern . Germany
Control, power, money – jack, queen, king, but you remain the ace. The Game of life. Your brain and state of mind are daily influenced by millions of impressions, which have to be selected. Never before in our history the human eye has been tempted so much. And somebody calculated that every person from birth to eighteen exposed to an average of over 730.000 advertising images. It took 2020 years to get this far. The media have long gone beyond the pure flow of information and indoctrinate our mind, stir up fears, separate and isolate people and usually have the solution and financing ready for the alleged problems. Science fiction scenario of the remote-controlled human mind, illusion of the past or long ago reality?! It is not over yet…

“COMMON GROUND / GEMEINSAMKEIT” . 6 x 2,50 m . Kaiserslautern . Germany
Apart from ethnicity, level of knowledge, social class, religion and species, there is a common denominator in these universes, which unites us all. The time. And this runs the same for everything and each of us, always, steadily, until the sand grains of life are counted. In general, life is mostly about winning or losing and this every day. But who decides that…?! Laws, religion, dogmas, printed paper, media, the majority, feelings, belief, or just yourself, if this is still within the realm of possible. However, there are no winners or losers here, nature and universal processes are unimpressed above everything. Life is limited if time is how you measure it. Tick, tack, tick,…

“GRAFFITI JOURNEY” . 7 x 2,50 m . Kaiserslautern . Germany

From the very beginning, trains were a preferred canvas for writers. (Before this Interweb and SocialMediaHype) Why? Quite simple, ideally they carry the work through the whole city and beyond. The art is brought to the viewer unannounced and free of charge. In art jargon, on the other hand, such processes are described as happenings, which are usually controversial but always treated with a certain respect and artistic claim. Art on trains is propagated as vandalism, the definition of which is translated as blind rage. (French vandalisme, referring to the plundering of Rome by the Vandals in AD 455) The spraycan has been my medium for over 20 years by now, this is a tribute to everyone who is out at night, lying around in bushes and railways, investing their lives and getting nothing back from society except ignorance and hate, near-death experiences only from your deepest inner drive to implement your art, self-taught without intension to be subject to art lecturers or studies, chases, blood, sweat, tears, love, hate, scars, the night, your moment that no one can take from you, absolute silence and perhaps the best experiences and stories in life and to live in the here and now … The night is yourz!
