I celebrate myself, and sing myself
My book Song of Myself: American Renaissance launches on December 11. The book consists of texts collected from the Facebook pages of Edgar Allan Poe, Emily Dickinson, Henry David Thoreau, Herman Melville, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Walt Whitman.
It is available as a small pocket book priced at €15,- and as a special edition that can also be used for exhibition. The image above is taken of an installation of the latter at Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin where the book will launch at Friends with Books.
The special edition consists of 58 inkjet printed sheets at A3 size in an archival folder. There are seven copies plus one artist proof. In the colophon each of the seven copies is associated with one of the poets that appear in the project, i.e. there is Edgar Allan Poe’s copy, Emily Dickinson’s, Henry David Thoreau’s, Herman Melville’s, etcetera. If you are ordering the edition you can choose which copy you’d like (check if it’s still available). The edition is priced at €745,-
The project will be exhibited at the Nederlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam from January 24 – May 8 in the exhibition Quickscan.
From December 11 to 13 I’m participating in Friends with Books. My new work Song of Myself will be installed in the exhibition ‘I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library’ also featuring works by Susanne Bürner, Natalie Czech, Anita Di Bianco, Dominique Hurth, Ines Lechleitner, Jonathan Monk, Joachim Schmid, and Erik Steinbrecher.
On Saturday December 12 at 13.00 Dr. Michael Lailach, Kunstbibliothek Berlin, leads a panel discussion with Céline Duval, Joachim Schmid, Erik Steinbrecher and myself on the artist and author as publisher. Strategies of text and image collection, of arrangement and publishing are to be discussed.
I’m also participating in the book fair, you’ll find my table at the entrance to the main hall (table E4). Both the limited and the regular edition of Song of Myself will be available, as well as my other new title The Library.

This coming Saturday, December 27, I will install One Swimming Pool on the floor of the Teijin auditorium at the Stedelijk Museum. Visit the auditorium between 10 am – 6 pm and watch the pool as it appears. Note this is a one day event, and the final in a series of three such demonstrations. It is connected to the exhibition On the Move. The swimming pool will remain on view in the auditorium during the weekend. More info on the website of the Stedelijk.

On Saturday 11 October you can come for a swim at the Stedelijk Museum. I will install One Swimming Pool on the floor of the Teijin auditorium. Visit the auditorium between 10 am – 6 pm and watch the pool as it appears. A word of advice if you’re stopping by: it may be best to come in the afternoon. At the beginning of the day the waters may be dangerously shallow for your dive. More info on the website of the Stedelijk.
