M. F. Die Ordnung der Dinge [M. F. The Order of Things] (2006-2020)

»M. F. Die Ordnung der Dinge« is part of the Series »Copy and Erasure«. In this case, the starting point is a book*, I found in a second-hand bookstore, and in which a former reader had underlined essential text passages. I copied the whole text by hand and then crossed out all previously unmarked passages of the book.
