»The Archive«, the artist’s physical and mental »storage«, unites retrospection with the present and the individual and cultural memory in an impressive presentation. Works from different periods and of various media will be brought together – selected artists’ books and texts, paintings, works on paper and sculptures will explore the evocativeness of their form and content. The installation as an image of singularity and disparity is to open up subjective and reflexive spaces for visitors to experience.
For 2014, the Pinakothek der Moderne in München, the Deichtorhallen Hamburg / collection Falckenberg, the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and the Contemporary Art Gallery in Vancouver are preparing relevant exhibitions with the artist. The book, which was developed in close collaboration with the artist, comments on the different aspects of his work.  The invitation to join in with text contributions was accepted by international authors of different disciplines as Anne Carson, Lebogang Mashile , Carla Schulz-Hoffmann, John Burnside, Oswald Egger and Rudi Fuchs.
