If collecting is a virus- I think I got it: Acquire unique objects that will guide, inspire, comfort and maybe even bore and enrage you throughout your life. Objects you and you alone possess (and are possessed by). I get it. To enrich my imaginary collection started at Art Cologne this year I browsed abc yesterday. These are the works I would not want to leave/live without. Total value of my imaginary second step into collecting: 124.000euro

the artists interpretations of 6 super hero capes; you can buy separately, I -as is imaginary- will buy all.
3. Ulrike Heise@ Helga Maria Klosterfelde

The artist's partial reconstruction of worm holes (different sized worms- different sized holes), sorted by size here, as met in her trip to ...( where I forgot)
4. Claire Fontaine @ Galerie Neu

The hole booth of Neu was exceptional, but this is what I would take with me. Art brands, marks, scars.
