EDITORS COMMENTS
This striking print captures the incredible sight of Michel soaring through the air in 1909, a time of great turmoil and change in Germany. As financial reform swept through the country, the German authorities resorted to extreme measures, squeezing the common man dry and even utilizing their skin for balloon-making. In this surreal image, we see Michel suspended high above the ground, his body transformed into a vessel for flight. The juxtaposition of his peaceful expression with the unsettling circumstances that led to his airborne state is both haunting and thought-provoking. The use of human skin for such a purpose speaks volumes about the desperation and disregard for humanity that characterized this period in German history. It serves as a stark reminder of how easily individuals can be exploited by those in power when faced with economic hardship. As Michel floats through the sky, he symbolizes not only Germany's future hanging precariously in the balance but also the sacrifices made by ordinary people in times of crisis. This image forces us to confront uncomfortable truths about our own capacity for resilience and vulnerability in turbulent times.
