Images and texts that I have dedicated to the children of this world. For love, truth, freedom and life!

What A Wonderful World

There’s a human child in discomfort
as if they’re cutting his heart out.
No-one takes any notice
of all the ongoing anguish.
We hear him whining, whimpering, screaming.
We could just free him.
But this is too much fuss,
people, what is wrong with us?

Streetchildren, Soulridden

It‘s not hard, I guarantee,
to pretend that we can‘t see,
it‘s perhaps too long ago,
ourselves to understand, you know.
So we flee into deceit, so we flee into intoxication,
all we do is just to cheat, so that was just our education.
The best go down, that‘s how, only some say stop, withhold,
but until you understand, you‘re almost just too old.

Bathing In Abundance

Artist and author AL, DENKSTAHL – in an interview with Sequana Birkel

The DENKSTAHL artist AL challenges every single person to question their own values ​​and motives, while addressing the extent and consequences of an egoistic and consumer-oriented way of being with unshakable vehemence. The name DENKSTAHL (thoughts of steel) says it...

No picture on its own may honestly bespeak, what needs to be said

The partiality for artistry, that I live in every breath, what I give is never enough and never will it be, because every work that I create remains ever too meager to a degree. No picture on its own may honestly bespeak, what needs to be said as critique, all the...

The art of not being an artist

My primary interest in art does not lie in the sphere of craftwork or techniques. Neither do I try to deliver appealing results appropriate for, or adapted to the viewer. The latter idea in particular exists in thousands upon thousands of versions. I call this kind of...

A day without a smile is a lost day – so what!?

DENKSTAHL’s work So What (orig. Na und) combines comedy, rebellion and tragedy in a cynical way. It is somewhat a tragic comedy; I dare say that this is an analogy to life. »It doesn't matter«, »so what«, »nevermind«, »it is not important« – many arguments have...

And then when we leave someday

»And then when we leave someday, you'll miss us, ‘cause We are aliens.« We are aliens – this phrase from Marteria's song »Aliens«, if you just let it sink in for a moment, has the potential to constitute a whole philosophy, an attitude towards life, or even religion....

NATURAL BORN

HEADS – WARPAINTING

HEADS – STARS

Denkplastik I/II

Do you know the dirge of love,
that tells you of life‘s despair?
Do you know hate‘s arrow of malice,
that fails its aim never?
Many a year has pugnacity ruled,
of evil and of good,
it‘s man‘s frustrated soul overruled,
an ocean full of children‘s blood.

Discouraged and driven by fear,
they‘re floating in a sea of sadness.
For them no place to stay is here,
are caught behind a walled in fortress.
Surround by many vultures deigned,
of moral and pain,
buried and entombed,
they cower so frightend, tiny and faint,
like bees in honeycombs.
They hear, see, and do not speak,
losing their souls they are,
a child‘s being, that simply breaks,
can‘t count them anymore.

Dream A Little Nightmare

How many drops of children‘s blood,
does it take to have fortitude,,
before man rises and loudly screams,
and the children of the world does free.
How many?

All I see now is earth in chaos.
I see people money-grubbing at loss.
I see children suffering and screaming.
I really ask myself: does that have to be or am I daydreaming?

Catch Me If You Can

Child Of Wealth I

Child Of Wealth II

Child Of Wealth III

A life for you children, for the children of tomorrow,
for common sense a gleam of hope,
to know a wonderful world,
where promises are kept,
where your souls glow,
like the stars in the heavens impearled,
a world for you unfurled,
a dream, a paradise, of milk and honey a land,
hand in hand with Peter Pan, someday when,
in a time not so long away, man already may,
give up lecturing, waging war
and in the end his love for you will conquer his heart evermore.

Humanity or the art of being human

We all have an idea of humanity and, consciously or not, evaluate and categorize behavior as being  »human« or »inhuman«. But what exactly does it mean to be human? What is humankind or humanity? Philosophical approaches define »human« in the sense of being »ethically...
