‘The work corpus consists of framed dedications and acknowledgements from publications in the social and political sciences, history, economics, feminism and philosophy. It illustrates the aspect of the visibility and invisibility of the contributions of those who provide essential support but are not the authors of the works in question. Conceived as a work-series-in-progress, corpus is on view in the exhibition for the first time. It is a comprehensive compilation of references to mostly unknown people and, ultimately, a condensed assemblage of speculative quantities and qualities in respect to hidden textual collaboration and supporters: minor or overlooked characters such as parents, partners, friends, even animal companions. corpus, one might say, is a transparency of non-visibility: through its brief commentaries or just the naming of names, it directs attention at an activity that has been eclipsed by the visibility of the product, the book, and the author.’ 

– Felix Ruhöfer, curator, basis Frankfurt
