During the 1970s Sigmar Polke travelled extensively, concentrating heavily on photography as a medium. Both in painting and printing his work often has an experimental flavour. This book is half catalogue with a list of 31 prints and half artist’s book which in the second part shows a series of 101 printed photos about dog/bear fights, men from the Far East gathering and smoking in contrast to photos of Hell’s Angels, police and rich people in the West. This chapter called Mu nieltnam netorruprup is equal to the title of print number 31 in the list of works in the first part of the book.
