The book moving - writing is a collection of brief descriptions of 120 works which, as an artist, I realized as performances and installations and in derivative form also in drawings and writings.
Despite the documentary character of the book - all described works are existing concepts appearing in chronological order - moving - writing is a new autonomous work about movement and the imaginative power of language.
Each page contains the description of one work: a short story about a formal and conceptual meeting with space and time, accurately described and shaped while at the same time leaving much space for the reader’s imagination.

Because of the possible role that my book could play in the never-ending discussion about conserving and documenting volatile works of art, I invited writers from related disciplines to respond to the subject through the book, as well as existing text that seemed relevant for this item:
