The making of the book is an artistic research process itself. Michael Kargl started out to make a book and asked himself how to do it. Sticking to that question he realized that there are innumerable factors that influence the processes of collecting material, writing, selecting, editing, etc. That’s where the “artistic” in artistic research starts: you cannot list all the influences since you, your body, your mood, etc. are all part of it. There is no possibility to describe these processes from a fictional “outside” point of view. The only possibility is to try to find out how they work — in practice. By making a book about making a book.
