Number 007 in the series: Documenta 13: 100 Notizen – 100 Gedanken (100 Notes – 100 Thoughts)

A reprint of diary pages from October 1980 by Erkki Kuriennemi (*1941), nuclear physicist turned artist and protagonist of electronic music in Finland whose work refutes, with a radical imagination, the common place that bases technology in frigid thought and loss of sensuality. Over decades, Kurenniemi incessantly built up his archive, comprised of photographs, floppy discs and harddrives, hundreds of video and audiotapes as well as dozens of notebooks, like the one presented here.

With an introduction by Lars Bang Larsen.
