"One of the schools in Tlön has reached the point of denying time. It reasons that the present is undefined, that the future has no other reality than as present hope, that the past is no more than present memory. (Russell [The Analysis of Mind, 1921, page 159] conjectures that our planet was created a few moments ago, and provided with a humanity which »remembers« an illusory past.) Another school declares that the whole of time has already happened and that our life is a vague memory or dim reflection, doubtless false and fragmented, of an irrevocable process."
Jorge Luis Borges "Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius"
Original pages of newspapers from different countries were collected from July 1st 1999 to June 30th 2000; one page for each day, cut to book size, so the respective dates appear in the upper corners. All pages together embrace the length of a year and document the transition into a new millenium. So each copy varies from the others, as each receives its individual newspaper-pages. A text passage in three languages (Spanish, English and German) from Jorge Luis Borges "Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius" about the topic TIME is printed black onto the black endpapers. Concept: Ines von Ketelhodt. Newspapers, 740 pages, printed paperboard. Oberursel 2000.
