The result of years of collecting, editing, and composing, this voluminous encyclopedia consists solely of images collected from other books and reads as a visual history of our collective past. Underlying themes of the Amsterdam-based, Swiss artist’s practice are the “iconification” and “immunogenicity” of old images, and the circumstances by which they become charged with new associative values. Painting, sculpture, murder scenes, film stills, x-rays, people praying, people squinting, areal views of crops, areal views of cities, and hundreds of other photographs and illustrations are composed in such a way as to suggest a cinematic sequence of images.
