Jonathan Monk is known for appropriating artworks of others. Here on 36 pages he has translated several Joke Paintings of Richard Prince in an apparently linguistically twisted German translation. The first joke ‘I never had a penny to my name, so I changed my name’ on page one of this publication is translated by Monk into: ‘Ich hatte nie einen Pfennig, so dass ich meinen Namen geändert.’
