On 23 September 1966, and then again on 17–18 June 1968, the photo journalist and filmmaker Digne Meller Marcovicz (*1934; †2014) took a series of photographs of the philosopher Martin Heidegger, published two years after the philosopher’s death in 1978.
The remaining copies of the original and only print run of the Stuttgart Verlag Fey edition have recently been returned from the distributors because they smell.
This exhibition is dedicated to the historic residue of printed matter and its subsequent metamorphosis into an olfactory trail.
The remaining 900 copies of the book will be given away on a first come first served basis in exchange for a voluntary donation.
