A collection of brief descriptions of Toine's movement performances- and installations since 1979. The book, that started four years ago as a possible form in which Toine's ephemeral works could live on, gradually developed into a writing project about movement and the imaginative power of language.
Each of the 120 selected works has been translated in the most concise way into words and sentences.
Because of the possible role that the book could play in the discussion about conserving and documenting volatile works of art, Toine included related texts by other writers who directly or indirectly responded to my writing: Marcus Bergner Hannes Böhringer Florian Cramer Jan Van Den Dobbelsteen Nell Donkers Tim Etchells Ger Groot Geert Koevoets Thomas Körtvelyessy Dom H. van der Laan Dick Raaijmakers Jan Laurens Siesling Sandra Smets Hans Stevens ieke Trinks Samuel Vriezen Ciel Werts - Emilie Gallier
