notations / third lecture / April 23rd / 2018


The question of how to write down my existential notations / my text was much more complicated than I had expected during my years of studying.

By the way, my studying consists mostly in visiting all the big temporary and permanent exhibitions in all the great museums in Germany.
So I learned a lot about how the respective others (Bacon, Giacometti, Guston, Beckett, Bernhardt – to name just a few of my heroes) where forced to deal with this problem and how they finally solved it.

I had understood; I have to find my very own solution – based on a universal grammar.

So my concentration was fixed on a methodical proceeding with which to elaborate in one process of notation both:
the universal grammar and my own kind of manifesting the impulses.
