In the open-ended PRINTED MATTER series, I pursue an interest in print media as raw material for recording and documenting history(s). It works via a specific form of book circulation and circulation transfer. Assuming, examining and transversing the circulation that results from the disposal, releasing and dissolving of printed matter (frequent possible causes might be e.g. the material has become insignificant from a concrete person’s point of view, the survival of the material in relation to human life). As a situated practice, allied to a semi-nomadic way of working and living, the materials vary in geographical reference points and bear no linguistic restrictions. With the assignment of dissimilar titles to the ‚found archives‘ I process the material in a collection-oriented mode that tell further stories about its histories and content.
