Anita Berber was the Femme Fatale of the Republic of Weimar, a cult person of Berlin who symbolized lust and excess until her early death. While the crisis of Berbers times could provoke hedonistic break-outs, the plurality of today’s society searches for conservative lifestyles and safety.

The poetic text and the lascivious charming pictures of “With red ink” express the longing for personalities like Anita Berber, who give back lust and vice to our times. – “Anita, smash your cognac on 2011, I will get you a new one!”
