The installation in the Grafisches Kabinett is fundamentally shaped by a meditation about the design of a space for holding out, waiting for death and finally passing away. A story of refusal, Georges Perec's novel A Man Asleep was inspirational for the piece. Shortly before graduating, a young man turns away from all social existence – its constraints, senselessness and futility – and decides not to engage with anything anymore. He gives over to aimlessness and slowly loses his feeling of belonging to the world. Finally the student abandons the experiment with the insight that his withdrawal from the world has no further consequence on the course of things.
