How to weave with canonical books? How to digest world history? Heide Hinrichs is cloning volumes of The Propylaea of World History weaving ropes through the simulated book covers. Covers that no longer hold content, but are secured like ruins and physically represent the absence of a narration and a loosening.
Heide Hinrichs, artist, lives and works in Brussels. She currently teaches at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. Villa Romana Fellow 2011
