The starting point of this artist’s book is Zuneigung (2020/21) by Markus Ebner. So far, it consists of ten copies of Günter Fruhtrunk’s 1982 painting of the same title. Five texts—essays and memoirs—were written around this work, dealing with questions of artistic copying and appropriation, with Fruhtrunk’s late work and Ebner’s project.
