Sid zeigt einen Schnitt

The work by Antonio Ortega is a photograph found on the internet, of the legendary British punk rocker Sid Vicious. It shows the musician sitting on a plane and showing off a deep open cut in the flesh of his arm. With the title („Sid zeigt seinen Schnitt“, engl. Sid shows off his cut) Ortega points out the topic of self-punishment and self-destruction. As well as the topic of copyright and image possession, in simply taking pictures from the open source Google and turning them to his own artwork.
