“Stellmach frequently brings to the surface those things most would rather leave unspoken… A suicide is implied in the third act of The Book of Back – in a book within a book – in addition to a surreal and bizarre tale where Bon Scott, Adolf Hitler, Kurt Cobain, Diane Arbus, a dog and the Brothers Grimm meet in an outlandish twilight zone.” Astrid Mania, Berlin writer & critic
The work was created at Künstlerhaus Bethanien Berlin where Stellmach was Australia Council for the Arts resident artist from 2006 to 2007.
Supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council
