Writings – Book 1

This is a compilation of writings related to my performance pieces from the years 1997 to 2005. In addition to that, I have also included some selected poems from the period when I first moved to Tokyo, where in my early twenties, while employed part-time at an advertising agency, I began to write as my own natural way of expression.

For me, writing documents is a self-identifying autobiographical process, which is absolutely imperative to my “record of the thoughtful body”. Like re-hydration for athletes; water pouring into and through my body as sustenance and as cleanser of remaining thoughts, residue of the fatigue of the physical exercise by myself or alone. It is a pleasure for me to create a private sort of conceptual relationship devoid of faces or the presence of an audience in front of me. A.T. Vienna, December 2007
