Hell Passport #22

Donato Mancini
Perro Verlag Books by Artists

13.2 × 18.4 × 0.3 cm

Have you ever been tased or tasered by the police? At some point Donato Mancini appears to have had a close brush with the law – close enough to ignite a fierce interest in the destructive electric shock these assault weapons aim at the hearts and minds of their victims. Carrying Mancini’s passport may not get you out of jail for free, but the drawings here are a sharp warning to the gentle reader to steer clear of taser-toting “law enforcers”.

Donato Mancini hasn’t been arrested since 2006. This is from a long (graphic) poem entitled Hail.
