“Pabst Blue Ribbon on Ice” is a collection of short stories about youthful naivity, the greed for adventure, factual and mundane danger. The stories begin in Beirut, Lebanon, but continue all over the world. The texts are interrupted by Pop song lyrics. Like Lana Del Rey’s “This Is What Makes Us Girls”, which the book’s title is quoted from. The photographs were taken during a trip to Beirut in February 2016 and depict contrasts in the cityscape.
Pabst Blue Ribbon” is an unfinished project. This booklet is an Inkjet printed dummy.
The short stories are as well part of a video performance.
