Welcome to the PAAK webside. As all games are, this side is also a work in progress, it will grow and some old and new stuff will be added from time to time. You can find here the actual long time projects "YO CAP" (yo*capitalism), "recycle NO ©" and "us cookbook" beside the sections of sound art and visual art. And the blog contains some actual statements and pictures.
This is an overview about recycle NO © (since 2005). All these works are collages / drawings on paper (30 x 30 cm). Besides the new drawings there is mostly recycled material used.
Since a some years i am working on YO CAP (yo*capitalism) as a comment to the world wide capitalism and its babaric & destructive character.
This is an overview of the records (vinyl / cassettes / cd) which i made as solo projects or as collaborations with other artists. Most of them are produced on the own label permaREV Platten.
