300 Love letters, price negotiable

The installation is based on an advertisement in the Münchner Abendzeitung, or rather my purchase of the cardboard box offered for sale, the contents of which document the relationship between a married man and his lover. The lovers had met twenty-five years ago through a personal ad in the same newspaper.

Details
1 box of letters, 40 x 30 x 20 cm; 80 transparent pockets with newspaper articles and correspondence, DINA4

The installation consists exclusively of the purchased material. While the private letters can be seen untouched in their cardboard box on a pedestal, newspaper articles on the subject of love and correspondence with reader advisors, as well as all documents and messages without direct address, hang on the wall in transparent sleeves.
