In Memoriam Schoko






















In 2014 Christian Mildbrandt aka Schoko Casana Rosso has died in Berlin. He was a graphic and mail artist, curator of a range of exhibitions and also founder/editor of the assembling magazine Body and Soul. Schoko was regular participant of "22" and my other mail art projects.
We have been in contact almost for 20 years.
I dedicated to him this issue with German artists (+ an Austrian) in German language.
Some participants were Schokos friends, others just corresponded with him for many years.
His brother Hendrik Liersch has donated for this booklet linoleum prints and 22 original graphics from Schokos heritage.

We will be miss his filigree works and his critical genius.
I learned from the obituary, that I was exactly 1 days older as he…

The participants:
Ingo Cesaro Karl-Friedrich Hacker Siggi Liersch Zoppe Voskuhl Thorsten Fuhrmann Saza Schröder Jörg Seifert Jürgen O. Olbrich Frank Milautzcki Petrus Akkordeon Susanna Lakner Wilhelm Schramm (A) Mikula Lüllwitz Bernd Reichert (B) Angela Behrendt Hendrik Liersch
