In this generous and quiet book everything appears to be quite innocuous at first but, on observing the pictures (due to their size and arrangement they are more like boards), chasms open up. The texts are accompanied by small illustrations ensuring that Britta Lumer’s works only go into the background momentarily. The artist disappears in a wonderful way at the end, just as Philip Guston would have imagined it.
