"Die Hölle ist, wenn man von innen brennt und kein einziges Flämmchen es nach draußen schafft."
"Hell is, if you burn from within and not a single flamelet gets out." (From the foreword of Carsten Tabel)
The book assembles selected texts by the Leipzig artist Carsten Tabel written in the past four years. Texts that were initially meant to comment his own works or those of other artists stand indistinctive right beside autonomous texts. Despite or maybe because of the lack of eventual references and fictional characters the distant observations, smart associations and suddenly explicit portrayals of everyday life shine a light on our reality, which is simply "das Böse" in the eyes of Carsten Tabel, "weniger ein Ort als eine unförmige kalte Masse."

"I'm not on fire" is available with a cover printed in red or blue (photo plate print). If you prefer a certain colour you can specify your preferences in the field "Your message" during the order process.
