Hermes Phettberg






grew up in the village of Unternalb
near Retz in a family of winegrowers.
Following a brief stint
as a bank clerk and continued
education, he became assistant
vicar with the Roman Catholic
Archdiocese of Vienna.

In the mid-1980s, he was
co-founder of the groups
Libertine Sadomasochismusinitiative
Wien and of project
Polymorph Perverse Klinik Wien.

Frucade oder Eierlikör?
clock or pony?
An Earthy normal language
is the goal of all contemporary
heretics. leave them all alone
to play with the masterpiece.
that's the message of god,
when my bladder is stopped up
and the anesthesia
becomes a reflux
an old Gottfried Benn
pretending to be Swedish
but not successfully.
