"In his vibrant exploration of a total art which in turn defies categorisation, Swiss artist Augustin Rebetez collaborates with numerous artists, punks, models, musicians, and friends to produce a multifaceted oeuvre. More than 200 charcoal drawings make up 'The Good Life', an ironic manual of life and what essentially amounts to a compendium of bad advice in broken English. These satirical phrases, sometimes funny, sometimes accurate, aim to make us live the good life. A guide that is basic, simple, elementary, but also terribly humorous and refreshing. With book design by Zurich-based graphic designers NORM and an essay contribution by Bassma El Adisey."
