HAPPY NEW YEAR Metal Ox!

For the first time since I started my own tradition, annual etching of the appropriate Chinese Zodiac in Christine Arweilers Radierwerkstatt der VHS Kreuzberg, this New Year due to the global pandemic restrictions I had no access to the printing tools and press. Consequently, there is no etching for the 2021 Metal Ox. The past year, Metal Rat, I was astonished again and again when I looked at the etching I had made in 2019, December, shortly before the outbreaks and closing down of public life. It is always an intuitive process for me to do these cards. In 2019, it was the first time, the animal was inside the house as motif – usually, there was an animal and a house. I remember making conversations with fellow printers in the community centre studio, we have known each other for some years, we know each other’s works and work processes, there is lovely respect and mutual admirations, senses of humor and open ears; I did mention my surprise at how the motif ended up a character inside. And I remember, it took two takes: I had ruined the first plate and decided to take off the first sketch and redo the plate, repolish, reasphalt, redraw. When I had placed the rat in its arm chair, I mumbled about, wondering/deciding whether the rat should be alone in its home, or be with a cat…and a fellow printer said. no, no cat – she shouldn t have to worry about a thing, just be contently with herself. I thought / felt such a relief. Now, that the year went by, I look at the card, and its bizarre foretelling: Framed hobbies, a home to sit in, contemplation, or is it not waiting? For this storm to be over? For something to lift of the worries? For the world to see how un-dignified so many are forced to live every day when there is not a “pandemic”? None of that seems to happen – not where I reside. Here is to a New Year, nonetheless, to a year filled with social and physical proximities! And to a new era that terminates the big taboo of social shutdowns of speaking about the ills of capitalism, of dying democracies, of festivities only for what something labels “productive”. Here is to aging! To Mother and Father Earth! To children and youth that I want to apologize to for not wreaking havoc when grown-ups claimed them as “spreaders of diseasese”, here is to respect for one another, and all these out-dated things that have no words, but only feelings. Axé!
