"In Zurich in 2012, I went to an exhibition at the Museum Strauhof called 'Bücherhimmel - Bücherhöllen: Lesen and Sammeln zwischen Lust und Wahn'. This translates as 'Book Heaven - Book Hell: Reading and Collecting between Desire and Insanity'. Suddenly a light is shone on the impact of the book that is not often in the spotlight, the book and/as desire, the book and/as madness, The ubiquitous presence of the book tends to dull our perception of its significance, its strangeness and our cultural dependence on it."
