The first postcard is an alteration of a postcard I sent Uli after I was in Amsterdam and saw the Rembrandt painting "The Night Watch". Uli writes on the back of his postcard about the Night watch "I remember to have seen the Night Watch three times. The last time the canvas was saved by bullet-proof glass. The previous time it was protected by a barrier made out of stretched ropes about two meters in front of the painting. And by the first time it was forbidden to approach the picture... those were the days...", despite of he mild grammar mistakes it is an interesting observation on how security around the painting has increased at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. When I saw it it had museum ropes and a security guard sitting on a stool watching the people watch the painting. They must have a Night watch for the Night watch I imagine.
One of the humorous pieces is the postcard with Amy Winehouse with a bunch of bananas. On the other side of the postcard there is rubber stamp of a image of the statue "Laocoön and His Sons" but instead of the head of Laocoön it has the classic head of Che Guevara. The collaborative "add and pass" i did with Uli has another Amy Winehouse with bananas along with one of manipulations of a Van Gogh self portrait.
