Where everything is text, because everything is code, there is no longer one finished work, but only semi-finished products—blanks. Images, films, sounds, words—in a digital world, everything is open to being processed and reprocessed, transcoded and converted. Hannes Bajohr's BLANKS: WORD PROCESSING collects poetry made by a whole range of digital operations and shows that, from the works of Kafka and management bibles to sex advice columns and climate reports, each text provides a space from which to go on, filling in a new version, translating it into one's own language.
Hannes Bajohr, born in Berlin, studied philosophy, German literature, and history in Berlin and New York and received his doctorate with a thesis on Hans Blumenberg's Philosophy of Language.
