free copies (2007)
photoinstallation / lambda print / free cards

In the autumn of 2007 I made a photo series documenting the process of discarding the book stock of the Radio Free Europe Library. OSA (Open Society Archives) inherited almost 100,000 volumes from the Radio Free Europe Library. The historically or professionally important part of the stock was transferred to the OSA and CEU libraries.

In the summer of 2007 most of the book archive was devaluated and made available to the public for free. The thus transubstantiated, re- and devaluated, discarded books were publications on political and economic history of the cold war period. My photographs show the process of this revaluation, devaluation and liquidation.
