When opening this book a knitted hand made malleable object lies hidden inside the pages. In 2011 the introduction of this object book on the publisher’s website was accompanied with the above beating heart. Very soon the animation was removed from the site.
The book is based on a film by John Bock. It is the story about an insane man who tries to find existential guidance through the humilation of another man – obviously having a financial debt – by pulling a tooth. By means of crazy diagrams attached to the human body and using the little girl Lütte as medium he believes to be able to find the right corrections and justifications. Drawing by artist on inner part of cover.
