  Bukaka Spat Here
... a disposable piece of anti-literature which combines wild flights of fantasy, Bataillean erotic excess, half-baked poetry and ‘primitive’ illustrations with sober theories of cultural and social revolution. Its accomplishment is to create a book which is non-serious and unimpressive in its style, yet imaginative and inspiring in its political passion. (Mute)

A: Bukaka is a relentless, tasteless, walking revolution, she spits and swallows, is weak and indestructible. Her philosophy does not quote Foucault and other dead white male jerks: it is barboodas, klikusha, pfush. She has no footnotes. Blood, spit and cum boil where she walks. Would make an excellent weekly comic. I know you are not Raymond Pettibon: he never did anything that exciting.

A&B: No, Bukaka is not really a comic book with a savage and sexy heroine but rather the story of a mad and oppressed migrant who tries to find radical political methodologies and ways of living. It is more a metaphoric portrait of a current left activist than a spitting machine. It is a story of personal and ideological disasters, a story of a naïve but brave soul who can’t obey to a world of masters and slaves. As well it is a metaphor for the danger of discourses and how these discourses exist in bodies. Besides, this book is about the impossibility of any ‘literature’, any aesthetics now.

Alexander Brener and Barbara Schurz are poets, caricaturists, novelists, theorists, percussionists, interventionists, artists, singers, non-professional wrestlers and authors of extraordinary tracts such as Was tun? (Edition Selene, 1999) and Demolish Serious Culture!!! (Edition Selene, 2000), much quoted acts such as obliterating official graffiti on the Berlin Wall with grey paint or screaming loudly in the palaces of contemporary art.
