Rebel Without A Cause is a project by artist Stefan Marx and distiller Christoph Keller. It features Keller's exorbitant collection of over 150 traffic tickets and regulatory warnings that he accumulated over the last 20 years. These acts of misconduct and unpleasant letters by the authorities transform into art with Stefan Marx’ associative drawings layered on top of each ticket. The originals were sold for the same price as the fine multiplied by 7 at Galerie Karin Guenther in Hamburg, under the motto "cheaper ticket = inexpensive artwork" thus the initial punishment transforming into a reward, value and joy. A special edition of the book with an original drawing at various price points (fine multiplied by 7) is available in an edition of 15 copies.
