LEIPZIG FILES AND ARCHIVES

Last week I finished this grid-like painting showing a cut-out detail of a closet filled with files. It is the most explicit reference that I have made so far to Leipzig history and the prominent role that archiving and filing of personal data have played in the history of this country. It was shown first time in my presentation at the open studio event last weekend and recognized as relating to German words Ordner (file or also the person who orders) and Ordnung (order). The image however suggests the files to be unused still.
