Recent­ly, I redis­co­ve­r­ed a 30-year-old litt­le note­book from Eng­lish les­sons. Some of the words are sur­pri­sin­gly rele­vant in 2020, on Elec­tion Day, when Ame­ri­cans go to the polls: on the first page the word “pre­si­dent”, on the last page “civil rights”, and “tri­al”.

It’s asto­nis­hing what Eng­lish words I did­n’t know at that time, so that I had to wri­te down their Ger­man equi­va­lent, for examp­le “oce­an” and “fol­low”.

I’ll make an artist­book from it, one more on the list of Books To Do.




Hier sind mög­li­che zukünf­ti­ge Publi­ka­tio­nen gesam­melt, skiz­ziert, in Form einer To-Do-Lis­te, als Ideen- und Stoff­samm­lung, als Selbst-Anre­gung und ambi­tio­nier­tes Arbeits­pro­gramm, mit einem Anflug von Uto­pie …
Die Lis­te wird stän­dig bear­bei­tet und erwei­tert und zu bestimm­ten Anläs­sen als Künst­ler­pu­bli­ka­ti­on gedruckt.


Pos­si­ble future publi­ca­ti­ons are collec­ted here, sket­ched out, in the form of a to-do list, as a collec­tion of ide­as and mate­ri­al, as self-sti­mu­la­ti­on and an ambi­tious work pro­gram­me, with a touch of uto­pia …
The list is con­stant­ly being edi­ted and expan­ded and is prin­ted as an artist’s publi­ca­ti­on on cer­tain occasions.
