The exhibition in Hanover represents a break in his creative output, for the artist does not want to continue to be compared with other painters and to be seen only in their succession. The work “Ich will erstmal ‘ne Cola” marks the beginning of a radically new development in his œuvre. Butzer calls all subsequently created works “N-Bilder” with reference to his optical utopia named “Nasaheim.”
