Jonathan Monk Shops at Erotica

Jonathan Monk
Jonathan Monk Shops at Erotica
Berlin, Germany: Erotica, [c.2009]
38 x 34 cm.
Edition size unknown

A silkscreen cotton bag produced by a since-closed Berlin porn shop. One of a series of bags indicating that the artist is a patron of various businesses, the others all being art stores (“Jonathan Monk Shops at Art Metropole”, “Jonathan Monks Shops at Specific Object”, “Jonathan Monk Shops at Untitled”, etc. - see below). 

It’s unclear if the work is a joke about his previous endorsements, or an honest admission. 

On the back of the bag, the design is repeated but in a mirror image.
