Actions to Relate to Each Other
Katrin Bethge, Bärbel Praun, Christine Rehders
Projektraum Dose, Hamburg

Dear Richard,

we would like to let you know that we’ll be using your
Verb List. Actions to relate to oneself, material, place, and
process that you wrote in 1967, as an impulse for our project
at Projektraum Dose. However, we will add our own set of
verbs, our own list of actions, and relate to each other and
the space, each of us throwing our material into the game.
We are curious where the process will lead us!
You are cordially invited to our opening in November.

Yours sincerely,
Bärbel, Christine and Katrin

07/2021 ‘The Blue & Green Project’
At the beginning of first lockdown last year I was invited to participate at ‘The Blue & Green Project’, commissioned by the New Modernist Editing network. Based on Virginia Woolf’s essay ‘Blue & Green’, the project explores methods of communal editing and the ways in which creative response can be used as an expansive form of annotation. The text fragment I picked is: ‚But the hard glass drips on to the marble.‘ So I collected discarded sheets of glass on my walks through town and tried my best.
Find more info about the project and the other artists’ work at www.blueandgreenproject.com
