The characters in Jünger's book of drawings triumphantly and tragically frolic in life’s epic struggle to be happy in spite of its meaninglessness. Page by page, they are caught in self-conscious and awkward poses, and in other moments, completely caught off-guard. They embrace, masturbate, slouch, seduce, dress up in absurd lingerie, stupor in drunkenness, and exhibit as one drawing declares, “Self entertainment at its best!” At Homie, we tried to do the same. Kora signed books. Frank Deimel played electric guitar in the corner. Homie served its customary drinks and party favors.
