This is a translation for an exhibition in the future of a statement for an exhibition in the past. In terms of its form, it is inspired by the texts of the Swiss artist Miriam Cahn for documenta14. I like this statement, so it will be printed in my portfolio, and no one will read it apart from its translator, Christopher Roth. It goes like this:
“We have had access. We have access. We will have access. We found a way. We made our way. We found our way through. We were able to obtain access.
We granted access to ourselves. We kept all access open for ourselves. We keyed in our code of access. Access was kept simple for us. We kept it simple. We had a key experience that was to ease our access. We had the key. We will get the key. We embody the key position that makes access possible. The access is distributed according to our key. We were able to use our access key.
We have access to this knowledge. It is the key to a certain type of knowledge. We’d always wanted to know. We have great knowledge. Our knowledge is too small for it. We reflect on our knowledge. We can’t do anything with this knowledge. We reach for knowledge. We go out and get knowledge. We have allowed ourselves to be impressed by this knowledge. This knowledge has left its impression upon us. We’ve shaped this knowledge. We can structure this knowledge. We shape this knowledge. Knowledge is key. This access to knowledge has left its mark upon us.
We know of a key moment. It is our key moment. We reflected on how that had been the key moment. History has shaped us. We must reflect upon our own history. We will leave our imprint upon the history books. Our work will go down in history. Our key work will change us for good. In the key situation, we will behave the right way.
We should reflect on our access. Our own disposition could be more reflected.
In our hands lies the key. We knead the key. We throw the key. We play with the key in our pant pocket. We leave the key inserted. We have misplaced the key. We’re searching for the key. The key is in our hands. We press the key into our hand.”
