Sechs Zeilen für Doktor Benn


“Im Schlafe und Traume machen wir das ganze Pensum früheren Menschentums durch.”

– Nietzsche



         Das Messer,

                            der Krieg –

         die Drogen,

                            der Sieg –

         die Schauer,

                            die Zeit –

         gelebtes Vergessen:

         – Welt-Einsamkeit!

What Games to Play

“It is a difficult business, no doubt, to get any fun out of existence; but at least it is not impossible.”

– Aleister Crowley


A voice floated down to me.

“Let’s decide what games to play

& how to settle arguments.”

“Come to pay me.”

“My honour.”

Something patted me on the shoulder.

“I can tell you secrets.”

Remembering the old ways,

I’d go for my own kin.

“I hate spiders.”

New feature: MyWebsite



New feature on ARTDOXA:


MyWebsite is your personal website that allows you to present your artwork from ARTDOXA – but  without  the  community functions. ARTDOXA has always been a place that encourages you to share and discuss your art – even the weirdest things and the most vague ideas are welcome – and that’s exactly the way we want it. On a ‘normal website’, things might be different, maybe you would just show a selection of your work. Well, that’s what MyWebsite is here for now. Just select the catalogs you wish to be shown, and that’s it.  This way you do not need to maintain an extra website. Test it one month FOR FREE –  MyWebsite is ready when you are.


You get a website in perfectly pure and clean style – and it even works on all kinds of mobile devices. The address is, but, of course, you can also just redirect from your individual web address to MyWebsite.


ARTDOXA has been a free service since 2007, and it will stay like that. But: Not only did we invest countless days, months and years of our lives into this precious project, but also a lot of money. So if you like MyWebsite, you can subscribe for € 7 per month.


This helps us to keep our platform ad-free and independent. Subscribing is very welcomed to cover  at least some  of the  server costs and development – even if you do not use MyWebsite. But who would not use something as beautiful as this?


All the best,
your ARTDOXA team



Speed Prose #2

”Always omit the blemishes. They’re not part of the good picture you want.”

– Andy Warhol


Save the dream beings, find a reason for life & establish a set of beliefs… erase deadly language… sometimes humanoid, sometimes alien… backing up secret electronic brain & a hungry brain is such reason… life as neoliberal dualistic exercise is no life… brain sense verify & close the Four & your opposition repeatedly see sense in worldwide containment of mutant brain disease… make no mistake! Don’t mix up reason & awareness! Lower brain activities threshold… lifelong controls… the end is at hand… the Four may have all of it; the Four may have none of it… so the humanoids keep worrying & worrying…

“Art has no need of certainty.”

– Friedrich Nietzsche 






on the beach 

court of below 

fake reasons corrode


a felon the chief

of this vicious island

brain tubes protrude &  

envy my parroting  puppet



& shadows 

gunning first roses

abandon by blackish remote

Apokalypse, klassisch modern

“Humor und Lachen… das sind meine Werkzeuge.”

– Marcel Duchamp 


dimmer flackern, ende –

& brägen glitzersteine

m/angst & müll glasiert

rest strahl & abgebrannt:

roll im strom – alkaloid!

halogene mondlaterne

leck-leck herab

plipp-plopp auf

glimmer glamour wüste –

keine nacht für’s kalte auge!
