In spring 1971 Markus Raetz created an animated film in the southern Spanish town of Carboneras based on 1,525 drawings in ink on paper.

This early work by Raetz, entitled eben, already features the mastery with which the artist regularly highlights the everyday miracles that exist in the permanent metamorphosis of objects, a recurrent theme throughout his oeuvre.
