    Galerie Brigitte Schenk, Cologne; Acquired directly from the artist

  • Exhibited

    Marilyn Manson created a cycle of pictures around the spectacular murder case of Elisabeth Short in 1947, which received high media interest due to the exceptional brutality displayed. The case is now well known as „black Daliah" in criminal and film history. The following trial was ruled by the media, a phenonema not unlike to the Michael Jackson process decades later. Manson has a deep personal understanding of such procedures being a person of common interest himself. Which is why the topic will always find its place in his performance as well as fine art.
