My Highlights from Art Basel 2014
All texts, advertisements and non-photographic illustrations have been removed from issue No. 6 from 07-02-2000 of the Austrian weekly news magazine profil and the magazine was reproduced almost simultaneously in the same layout.
The project "profil without words", which had been under preparation for a long time and which was originally planned for the end of February, was brought forward due to the political situation in Austria. It goes back to a representational model conceived by the German concept artist Hans-Peter Feldmann in the early 70's.
Only a few copies of this limited edition are left.

After winning the Guggenheim’s 2010 Hugo Boss Prize, Hans-Peter Feldmann famously cashed his $100,000 check and pinned it in dollar bills to the museum’s walls, raising questions about the value of art. He is known for his examinations of seriality in daily life, as in his 1973 work All the clothes of a woman (photographs of every item in a woman’s wardrobe) or 2005’s One Pound Strawberries (each fruit that constitutes a pound). By assembling images and objects in unlikely or un-noteworthy combinations, Feldmann reveals their embedded emotional associations.
