«Les étapes par lesquelles l'esprit semble être passé, il les possède encore dans les profondeurs de son présent.»

W. F. Hegel


Pre-existing books and journals are augmented and by ceramic reliefs, paint and marker by Juli Susin and Jonathan Meese. The ceramic elements are part of a larger whole that was originally intended to become a treasure hidden at the bottom of a lake during a performance. This performance never happened. In june 2007, the door of the ceramics room was forced open by a certain Frau Killgaz of the real estate company inwesta at Adolfstrasse, Steglitz and the contents were trashed. Eventually, without any intervention by the artists, the disappearance of the work generated a new legend of the treasure. The complete archives of the affair will be published as a paperback by Magnet River in 2017.




2009-2012, Royal Book Lodge (Albisola-Paris). Portions of a ceramic relief, painted over with oil paint and marker. 38 original copies, all signed by the artists.
