Regular price €23,00

“Objects as mute witnesses retain their histories like vessels. Through the sensibilities of different writers the objects voice their material memory and thus engage in a dialogue across the limits of time and place. New reflexive storylines are established that mirror the contemporary intersections and fractions of collective memory rather than a coherent version of the truth”, a concept similar to that of Spoerri’s An Anecdoted Topography Of Chance, texts inspired by objects found in an Amsterdam auction house, written by Sarah Arnolds, Maurits de Bruijn, Revka Bijl, Caren Beilin, David Bernstein, Nicolina Eklund, Alexandra Karpilovski, Olga Terre, Daniel Vorthuys, Anne Marijn Voorhorst, Garrett Nelson, and Carina Erdmann, accompanied by photographs by Carina Erdmann and Tomé Duarte, concept and edited by Carina Erdmann, text in English, soft cover in a transparent, printed on dust jacket, 24,5 x 16,5 cm, 128 partially numbered pages, Amsterdam 2017
