By Stephan Kaluza

Ein rasanter Künstlerroman, eine tragikomische Geschichte!

Die Farbe auf der völlig unerwarteten Trennung von seiner Freundin Mel ist noch nicht ganz trocken, da wartet schon der nächste Schlag auf den Künstler Bastien: Mel ist nun auch noch mit seinem Mäzen Thomas zusammen. Bastien erkennt in seinem Trennungsschmerz, dass sich die Realität nicht so leicht modellieren lässt wie seine Südsee-Phantasien, die ihn in eine wundersame Welt mit baumhohen Blüten entführen. Sein Freund Rob steht ihm bei und diskutiert mit ihm nächtelang über Konzeptkunst: Wie originell muss guy heute als Künstler sein, um wahrgenommen zu werden? Bastiens fatale Idee, seinen eigenen Tod als Kunst zu inszenieren, findet bei Rob keinen Anklang. Doch als er den Plan provokant auf fb postet, scheint er in der mysteriösen Mila eine Leidensgenossin zu finden. Das Drastische in ihren Mails fasziniert Bastien, und in ihm wächst das Verlangen, sie zu treffen. Ob das gutgeht? Denn tatsächlich hat Mila ihren ganz eigenen Racheplan.

Mit scharfsinnigem Humor erzählt Stephan Kaluza die Geschichte eines Malers in einer tiefen Beziehungs- und Schaffenskrise und vom überraschenden Aufeinanderprallen falscher Erwartungen. Während die Charaktere ausnahmslos den täglichen Kampf gegen das eigene Selbstbild führen, spüren sie nicht, wie sie im Dunkel der Bühne haltlos aufeinander zustürmen.

Stephan Kaluza hat einen rasanten Künstlerroman geschrieben, eine tragikomische Geschichte, die sich in shakespearescher Manier immer weiter zuspitzt, bis die Katastrophe unvermeidlich scheint.
