Trouble mit der Anima consists of 34 photographs of dishes with mostly smiling, partially grimly looking faces made of leftovers, from the meal the artist just has eaten. Erik Steinbrecher took the photographs ambulant and on the quick with his iPhone, right before the waiter picked the plates for throwing the leftovers away. Therewith the photographs contrast the dictum “don't play with food” so as they freeze the instant, just before the artworks disappear. By playing with the food the artist animated the leftovers with their own lives. So we don't stare anymore at banal relics of daily life, but subjects with their own anima, that stare back. Trouble mit der Anima is a selection out of tons of photographs. Presented in black and white with only two colored inserts, the photographs abstract the concrete motif of a smiling – or querulous – face even further and make them to self-reliant pictures.The artist book is published on the occasion of the exhibition ANIMISMUS at Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin, that took place in March 2012.
